Lagosians will not have to battle with armed robbers’ new trick of disguising as traders to attack unsuspecting road users in traffic, Vanguard reports.
This according to the Lagos state government, explains the recent clampdown on street traders and hawkers, especially in traffic across the state.
Dr Samuel Adejare, the commissioner for environment in the state, who spoke during an interview last weekend, said it is getting increasingly difficult for people to distinguish between the real traders and robbers in traffic, adding: “some robbers disguise as traders in traffic and rob commuters.”
While also lamenting the disturbance on the infrastructure at the Lagos Island Central Business Districts (CBD), Mr Adejare said: “We have set up a special Kick Against Indiscipline, KAI, unit to ensure that the CBD remains clean always. Companies make so much money from there. They have to sanitize the area.”
This new development is coming following consecutive attacks on people in Lagos traffic, especially as some people lost their lives and properties in the course of the attacks.
Also, some robbers numbering about fifty, also disguised as soldiers and besieged two banks in Festac town area of Lagos state and carted away millions of naira, killing a mother and her child in the process.
