When passengers on board a LAGBUS en route Oshodi, Lagos State, left the Sango end of the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, little did they know that their journey would be cut short by bandits.

At the toll gate area, some metres away from the vehicle’s take-off point, some hoodlums stopped the bus under the pretext of boarding it.

Hardly had the vehicle come to a halt when the assailants, numbering about 20, reportedly jumped in to dispossess passengers of their valuables.

One of the gang members was said to be armed with a gun, while others wielded cutlasses, knives, sticks, among others.

The bus conductor, a lady, managed to escape after the robbers had collected some money from her.

She was said to have alerted passersby and raised alarm.

Having seen that a mob was advancing towards the scene, it was gathered that the robbers took to their heels.

The mob was said to have nabbed and beat up three of the suspects.

A resident in the affected area, who identified himself only as Abbas, said it took the intervention of operatives of the Alagbado Police Division to rescue the suspects from the mob.
