A band of robbers attacked a commercial luxurious bus belonging to Chisco Transport Company, robbing occupants of their money and belongings. Thankfully, a group of soldiers came and saved the day, scaring away the robbers. No life was lost during the incident.
Eyewitness Sunday Micheal Francis of Daily Trust Newspapers, who was one of the victims, narrated the incident:
“Travelling in the company of Francis Arinze Iloani and Daniel Adugbo, our Bus drove into the waiting arms of a robbery gang shortly after the Lagos Shagamu exchange.
“Moments after been stripped of valuables, a gallant team of Nigerian solders showed up like ‘manner from heaven’ and halted what would go down as the deadliest 5 minute for many of us yet.
“Save for the little cuts here and there from shattered windscreen and pains from the stampede that followed our desperate attempts to take cover, we all came out alive and grateful.
“My soul glorifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my saviour…”
