Personnel of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA, on Thursday, arrested two suspected members of the ‘Catch in the Air‘ robbery gang popularly called ‘One Chance’ in the Abule-Egba area of Lagos.

It was gathered that the suspects had been terrorizing Abule-Egba and its environs before meeting their Waterloo.

It was also learned that the gang’s mode of operation was to pick up unsuspecting commuters at bus stops in Abule-Egba, with some of its members posing as passengers, only to attack their victims, dispossessing them of cash, mobile phones and other valuables.

They often also push their victims out of the vehicle and zoom off.

While explaining how luck ran out of them, the Director, Public Affairs and Enlightenment Department of LASTMA, Mr Adebayo Taofiq, said, “They were being chased by members of the public when they noticed that a man was pushed down from their vehicle after robbing him of his valuables.

“The suspects drove recklessly to evade arrest. They were eventually caught by LASTMA officials controlling and managing traffic around the Abule-Egba axis.

“Immediately they were arrested, one of them escaped with a P.O.S machine before the arrival of the Policemen.

“Two suspects were later handed over to Policemen from the ‘Ile-Epo’ Police Division for further investigation,” he added.

Recovered from the suspects was their operational commercial bus.
