Robbers Storm Lagos Filling Station, Cart Away N9m, Police Arrests All Workers

Dare devil robbers on motorcycle struck at a filling station in Ejigbo area and carted away N9 million in Lagos State, western Nigeria.

The incident happened at a popular filling station located at Jakande Estate along Ikotun/Ejigbo road, Ejigbo Lagos.

P.M.News gathered that the incident happened last weekend after the station officials were about to take the money loaded in a bag to a nearby bank.


How the robbers knew that such amount was kept in the station and was being taken to a bank was a surprise to residents who knew what happened.

The residents said that the attack might have been masterminded by an insider who knew about the movement of the money.

P.M.News also gathered that the money was proceeds from three days sales.

The day they eventually wanted to go to the bank to deposit the money was the day the robbers struck.

Following the attack, the station has been shut and the manager and workers have been arrested for interrogation.

They were initially arrested by the police at Ejigbo Division who later transferred the suspects to SCID, Panti, Yaba, Lagos.

An eyewitness said the robbers struck at 4 pm on that day and pointed a gun at the manager’s head and ordered him to release the money packed in a big sack.

The manager surrendered it and they carted the money away on their motorcycle.

When our correspondent visited the station this Thursday morning, the place was shut.

A private security guard employed after the incident declined to speak and said the director was not around.

Our correspondent, however, gathered that a new set of staff has been brought to manage the station while the former staff were at the police for investigation on the incident.

When our reporter visited Ejigbo Police Division, the DPO was not around to comment on the matter.


However, sources at the station confirmed the incident and said the suspects have been transferred to SCID for further interrogation.
