One Ibrahim Toyin, a female journalist and producer with Television Continental, TVC in Lagos, has narrated her ordeal in the hands of ‘on chance’ robbers.

Toyin had boarded a bus on her way to work on March 9 at about 5:30am with four other commuters at the Ketu Bridge heading towards the Berger-Magodo axis of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

The bandits, who were also on board the vehicle, robbed her and the other commuters of their belongings, assaulting them in the process.

According to the report, the thugs attempted to rape her.Speaking with newsmen from her hospital bed on Thursday, the victim said the robbers attacked them barely two minutes after boarding the bus, collecting their phones and cash, adding that they were also taken to an Automated Teller Machine, ATM, where their cards were used to withdraw money under duress.

“It was a 14-seater bus. I wanted to sit at the second seat at the back of driver’s seat, but the conductor said that was his seat so I had to go to the last seat. I and four other people were victims.

“Two minutes after the vehicle took off, one of the robbers began to hit me. He asked for my ATM pin number but I gave him a wrong number.

“When the vehicle pulled over at a nearby ATM, they tried the numbers and discovered that the pin was a fake one, so they descended on me, hitting andbooting me with their heavy shoes.

“They were stepping and marching me very hard. I would have died if they had succeeded in raping me. They injured me in the head.

“I am still spitting blood. They stole my three ATM cards, one phone and the N3, 000 in my pocket. They robbed other victims too and pushed two of them down while the vehicle was on motion.

“I had to tell them the truth, giving them the pin numbers of my GTB and Skye Banks cards. As they were beating me, I bit one of them and he becameangry and tore my jeans trousers.

“He wanted to rape me. I was saved by one of them who warned that there was no time for that.

“The company just paid my salary and I was hoping to withdraw some money the day before the attack. The robbers have withdrawn all,” the journalist lamented.
