Music consultant and PR expert, Tunde Praise was robbed in traffic along the Gbagada expressway during heavy downpour in Lagos, yesterday. Narrating his experience, he wrote;
“Glory to God. Please read carefully, this will help someone. Not less than forty five minutes ago I was robbed exactly in Gbagada express way by area boys. it was raining heavily and sure there will be traffic , they came close to window told me to wind down and give them money, I was scared, so many things was running through my mind, what if I rolled down and they pulled out a gun or stab me. I didn’t roll down. Before I know what was happening they were banging my car and shouting.”
“I tried to see if I can move quickly by overtaking the car before me , the traffic was really heavy , sure I can move. They came to the other side of the window ,smash my glass , took away my laptop and the money I had in the car (I placed that on the down board shed — had like 20k or so there) Anyways, I’m fine and well.
But this is my point . I don’t understand why security agencies will disappear from the road when it’s raining anytime its raining there will be traffic and its sure a perfect time for this boys to rob. The government should please beef up security in Lagos.
Caution Please don’t drive when its raining ..I will not again abeg, especially on that express road. Don’t drive at night and roll down your glass. Don’t drive by the side of the road stay in the middle lane. Its real , these boys are robbing and hurting people. Finally ..am fine and well. Even though am still very much shaken..this is my first robbery experience. Thank you Jesus”.
