“I pleaded with them that I had no money on me. Within a twinkle of an eye, they mobilized their colleagues, apparently lurking around.

“They were about six in number. I had to flee. They chased me from Isheri – Berger Garage to Agege stadium. They beat me ceaselessly and broke a bottle on my head.

“I was lucky, their leaders were arrested right there by RRS men. It was as if God answered my prayers. I had given up hope of surviving it”

Commander of Rapid Response Squad, CSP Olayinka Egbeyemi assured the victim that all the suspects involved in the robbery would be brought to book, emphasizing that those who are not prepared to earn a living legitimately would have a tough time living in Lagos.
