The convoy of the Lagos State governor, Mr Akinwumi Ambode, recently made a timely intervention and saved several motorists from armed robbers who were poised to unleash mayhem at the popular Long Bridge on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

The incident reportedly occurred at about 8 pm Thursday, when daredevil robbers, dressed in police uniform and armed to the teeth, mounted a roadblock on the busy route under the ruse of a stop and search.

Vanguard reports that the bandits had caused a holdup of sorts and were about to commence operation when their devious scheme came unstuck.
