The Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Nigeria Police Command has arrested a man, who claimed to be a driver of commercial bus in Lagos, popularly known as Danfo driver, Ademola Ibrahim for illegally removing the rails both under and above the Eko Bridge.
Ibrahim was said to have conspired with one other suspect simply identified as Kampo to commit the crime on April 24, 2015 at about 7pm.
The suspects had attempted to park the bridge rails into a waiting Volkswagen Paragon bus with registration number MUS 457 XK when they were intercepted, while the said Kampo took to his heels upon sighting the RRS patrol vehicle.
The RRS operatives were said to be acting on reliable information to the effect 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.
Investigation of the command revealed that the suspects have been indulging in such criminal act in other parts of the state.
I want to use this opportunity to appeal to all residents in the state to watch out for miscreants who are into stealing and destroying structures put in place by the government. It is the duty of us all to report vandals like this to the nearest police station.
