A Lagos man, Tunde Praise has warned motorists to either avoid driving on Lagos roads whenever it is raining or take extra caution.
Tunde_Praise, whose Instagram profile reads that he is a media consultant, raised the alarm on Thursday after narrating how he was robbed in Gbagada, Lagos.
He said the thugs observed that policemen are usually unavailable when it rains.
He said when he refused to roll down the glass on his side, the thugs shattered the front passenger side glass and took his belongings while he watched helplessly.
“I don’t understand why security agencies will disappear from the road when it’s raining… anytime its raining there will be traffic and its sure a perfect time for this boys to rob,” he lamented.

Glory to God. Please read carefully, this will help someone. Not less than forty five minutes ago I was robbed exactly in gbagada express way by area boys . it was raining heavily and sure there will be traffic , they came close to window told me to wind down and give them money, I was scared ,so many things was running through my mind ,what if I rolled down and they pulled out a gun or stab me. I didn't rolled down . Before I know what was happening they were banging my car and shouting . I tried to see if I can move quickly by overtaking the car before me , the traffic was really heavy , sure I can move. They came to the other side of the window ,smash my glass , took away my laptop and the money I had in the car (I placed that on the down board shed — had like 20k or so there. ) . Anyways ..am fine and well. But this is my point . I don't understand why security agencies will disappear from the road when it's raining …anytime its raining there will be traffic and its sure a perfect time for this boys to rob. The government should please beef up security in Lagos. Caution Please don't drive when its raining ..I will not again abeg ..especially on that express road. Don't drive at night and roll down your glass. Don't drive by the side of the road stay in the middle lane. Its real , these boys are robbing and hurting people . Finally ..am fine and well. Even though am still very much shaken..this is my first robbery experience. Thank you Jesus .
