Ekene Okoro, a press officer to the former governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode was on Wednesday night robbed by traffic robbers on Oshodi-Apapa Expressway.

Okoro specifically served as a press officer in the office of former Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s Chief Press Secretary.

Narrating his ordeal in the hands of the robbers, Okoro who explained that he was robbed around Cele Bus Stop on his way to his Ago Palace home at about 9:35pm, argued that the hoodlums took away his wristwatch, handsets, and cash.

Describing the experience as “traumatizing”, the press officer noted that the hoodlums descended on other motorists after finishing with him.

According to Okoro, “Done with me, they ordered me to move. 

“At this point, I felt they wanted to use me as a bait to raid other vehicles behind.

“As soon as I saw that they were distracted with their next victim, I zoomed off. 

“The first thought was to run far away from the scene, second thought was to head back to my car and zoom off.

“I listened to the second thought. 

“I sneaked back to my car, approaching from the front and hoped to jump in and zoom off. 

“Alas! they had taken my key as collateral damage.”
