BreakingNews 18/4/16 - Nigeria: Bandits rob motorists along Okpere/Okene road

[ Masterweb Reports: Victor Edozie reports ] - Armed bandits have robbed unsuspecting passengers along the lonely Okpere/Okene road and dispossessed them of their valuables. Witnesses said the six heavily armed bandits barricaded the Okpere/Okene road for more than one hour. Two vehicles, a Tayota camry and a Siena bus were intercepted by the bandits.


The witness said the bandits directed all the passengers from the vehicles to alight just as they were dispossessed of valuables such as handsets, I-Pad and undisclosed amount of money.


"The vehicles were coming from Auchi and suddenly ran into an ambush of armed bandits. We sighted them and quickly made a detour back to Okpere and finally ran inside bush. They succeeded in robbing two vehicles before Police came in", the eye witness said.


The incident caused pandemonium along the Okpere road as more than fifty oncoming vehicles quickly made a detour. Passengers and other occupants of the vehicles alighted and ran inside the bush. 


The incident caused a very serious traffic gridlock along the road as vehicles were parked at the two wings of the road.


Policemen dispatched from Kogi State Police command later came and opened the road for vehicular movement.
