It has almost become a daily event.

It is the activities of armed robbers on the Benin-Ore stretch of the Lagos-Benin expressway.

These attacks typically start with armed bandits – sometimes shooting sporadically –  blocking one side of the expressway with a vehicle. This makes it easy for them to rob the travelers heading towards Ore-Sagamu or to Benin and the eastern part of the country.





Travelers are robbed of their money, handsets and other personal belongings, while some abandoned their vehicles and run into the bush for safety.

On-coming motorists, who get wind of the attack ahead of them, make U-turns to escape the robbery scene.

The escaping motorists – when within a safe distance from the robbery scene – assemble and watch from a distance how unlucky travelers – typically in mass transit vehicles –  are robbed and subjected to harrowing experiences.

During the robbery attack, vehicles coming from Benin and heading toward Lagos or coming from Lagos and heading towards Benin or Akure are held for close to an hour, causing gridlock on the ever busy road.

Watch below, a video  captured near the scene of a robbery attack at the Benin-Ore express.

 





 

Curiously, the police highway patrol team are never anywhere near these scenes of robbery attacks.

For some bizarre reason, they always seem to show up when the robbers have departed the scene of their evil enterprise. Thus, giving room for suspicion of the connivance of the police in the robbery.

The consistency of these attacks is really given frequent travelers on that expressway a serious cause for worries.

The Ondo and Edo command of the Nigeria police force and other security agencies need to do more to provide security for Nigerians that travel along that stretch of highway.

With the frequency of armed robbers attack at this road, the Benin-Ore express road should rank as one of the most dangerous roads in the country.
