Three Americans have lost their travel documents, money, phones and other valuables to traffic robbers at Oshodi.
It was gathered that the incident occurred on November 6, around 8:20pm, while the visitors were on their way to Victoria Island from the Muritala Mohammed International Airport (MMIA).
The victims, whose names were not disclosed, were said to be working for a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) in the United States (U.S) and were in the country to attend a programme.
The victims were issued new travel documents and returned to America.
According to a security expert, Seyi Adetayo, who shared the ordeal of the American nationals on social media, the victims were attacked by four men, who surrounded the vehicle conveying them to Eko Hotel.
He said: “They arrived Lagos at about 5pm and were stuck in a traffic gridlock for about three hours in Oshodi. Their vehicle was attacked around 8:20pm around Oshodi axis. The assailants were four in number. They surrounded the vehicle. Immediately, the two at the back smashed the windows and yelled at them “where is the money? One of the passengers lost her laptop, wallet, cash and travel passport. The second colleague lost her IPhone.
“The case was reported at Ilupeju Police Station the next day and we were informed that a lot of robbery attacks took place around that place and time. We were also told that two Britons just left the police station, they were attacked and also lost all their valuables, including their passports, bags, phones etc.
“We were advised that pending when the Oshodi construction work would be completed, once it is 4pm we should take the international/local airport axis to Maryland and make a turn towards Ojota to connect Alapere to the third mainland.
“They confirmed that Maryland towards Anthony to connect with the bridge is also not safe. We are also approaching the festive period and need to be more security conscious.”
Adetayo told The Nation that a colleague of his who works with the victims’ establishment, was the originator of the post, adding that he only shared it on social media for motorists to be conscious.
