My gang robbed 100 motorists on Otedola bridge in the past two years — Robbery kingpin, ‘Thug life’

For long, Otedola Bridge on the Lagos- Ibadan expressway has been notorious and dreaded for various reasons.

When it is not the fatalities of accidents recorded on the bridge, it will be bloody attacks by hoodlums that terrorize motorists on top of the bridge.

The notoriety of the half kilometer bridge is such that motorists express deep sighs of relief after passing through it. Fortunately, the ugly situation attracted the attention of the Commissioner of Police, Lagos state, Adegoke Fayoade and he swung into action by detailing a crack team of policemen led by female Chief Superintendent of Police and DPO of Alausa Police station, CSP, Tokunbo Abaniwonda to flush out the hoodlums who have turned the bridge into haven for all sorts of criminalities and remained a thorn in the flesh of motorists whose vehicles break down in the night.

Thus, the female police officer drafted her men and during a sting operation on the bridge, she nearly lost her life after the hoodlums succeeded in attacking and injuring her. They disappeared with her phone.

However, the table turned against them after both kinetic and non-kinetic approaches were deployed in arresting the fleeing criminals. The leader of the gang, Tochukwu Nonso, 29, narrated to Crime Guard, how the gang was formed, their mode of operation and exploits and boasted that they have successfully robbed no fewer than 100 motorists on the bridge in the past two years.
