Men of the Lagos state Rapid Response Squad, RRS, on 25th apprehended a danfo driver, Ademola Ibrahim, for stealing bridge rails on the Eko Bridge in Ijora, Lagos. Ibrahim was said to have conspired with one other suspect simply identified as Kampo to commit the crime.
The suspects had attempted to park the bridge rails into a waiting Volkswagen Paragon bus with registration number MUS 457 XK when they were apprehended. The RRS operatives were said to be acting on reliable information that some miscreants were removing bridge rails, both the ones used to guide the bridge on top and the ones used to tie the bridge under.
A massive manhunt has been launched to get the other suspect who is on the run. Ibrahim will be charged to court soon.
