Panic As Gunmen In Military Uniforms Strike On Lagos-Ibadan Expressway

Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have attacked passengers along the Lagos -Ibadan expressway.

According to one of the passengers who traveled on the road, the gunmen wore military uniforms when they struck shortly before Shagamu on the expressway on Tuesday.

They were said to have emerged from the bush and started to shoot sporadically at a commercial bus loaded with passengers.

The shooting according to Punch, had damaged the commercial bus conveying the passengers while another passenger lamented the absence of policemen during the operation.

A man who escaped death, but suffered a bullet shot in his legs remained surprised how he was still alive after the incident.

Some intending passengers who said they had planned to travel to Lagos from Ibadan on Wednesday said they had aborted their trips.

Two of them said the road had become a no-go- area for now because of the frequent attack by gunmen on the road.

A civil servant, Toyin Akanmu said he was supposed to travel to Lagos this weekend said he had shelved the idea until a later date.

Another resident of Ibadan told journalists that she would advise her husband who comes to see her every weekend to stay back in Lagos until the situation on the road improves.
