Robbers attacks passengers on Sapele-Benin road. Suspected armed robbers have taken over sections of Delta State’s Sapele-Benin route, using sharp objects to violently demobilize selected vehicles before attacking the passengers.

According to PUNCH Metro, numerous motorists were targeted by suspected highway robbers on Thursday morning.

According to witnesses, after demobilizing the targeted vehicle tyres, the hoodlums got in and attacked the passengers, carrying belongings away.

It was also gathered that the highway robbery suspects forcefully compelled many stranded commuters to part with unspecified amount of cash.

A victim and driver of a Toyota Sienna SUV with Registration Number Delta WWR243PR was sighted in a hot altercation with the suspects near Jesse Junction, shortly after one of his vehicle tyres was hit by the sharp object they threw at it whilst on motion.

Also sighted at the scene was a truck which was said to have been forcefully demobilised earlier in the day by the gangsters.

When contacted, most of the stranded commuters, who sought anonymity, expressed gratitude to God that the attack was not in the night or in the wee hours of the day.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Bright Edafe, could not be reached for comments on the incident as of the time of filing this report.
