There was chaos at the Warewa bridge on the Lagos-Ibadan express way as motorists fled leaving their vehicles behind after robbers attacked them.
A motorist told PUNCH Metro on the telephone at about 8.30pm that a lot of people abandoned their vehicles and took to their heels for safety in the bush.
He said, “There is confusion on the bridge. Many of us are outside our cars. We suddenly heard that the robbers had attacked again and people started fleeing their vehicles. Some of the hoodlums were not armed with guns. We decided to get stones with which we would attack them. We are standing outside now, just in case of any attack.”
Another motorist, identified as Adebola was bitter about the situation. She said, “The contractor should remove the dividers and ease the traffic. Those robbers are using the opportunity of the traffic to unleash mayhem on motorists. It should not be so.
As at press time, the Ogun state acting Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, did not pick up his calls. He also had yet to reply to a text message sent to his phone.
