Gunmen reportedly dressed in military uniforms on Tuesday attacked commuters travelling on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

The gunmen believed to be kidnappers stormed the road from the bush before the Sagamu Interchange en route Lagos and shot at motorists in the 18-passenger inter-state bus.

Some victims who craved anonymity told Punch that, “We (passengers) were only lucky to escape the gunmen but many of us have been injured by the bullets and our bus has been badly damaged too.”

Another video shows a man who survived bullet wounds recounting his experience saying, “I thought I was dead, having been shot by them.

“They faced our vehicle shooting at us, we all lay down except the driver who was the target. They thought we were all dead and retreated into the bush.

“The joint patrol team of police officers from Ogun and Oyo states arrived at the scene later.

All attempts to reach the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, for further details proved abortive as of the time of filing this report. He did not take his calls nor reply to the text message sent to his phone.
