The Lagos State Government yesterday alerted residents of the state on new tactics armed robbers have devised to rob. In a statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Habib Aruna, the state government said robbers now render their prospective victims unconscious through rubbing a perfumed handkerchief on their faces before robbing them. The statement added that the robbers usually target unsuspecting victims either in a lonely commuter bus, taxi or a quiet corner.
The statement listed the Igando axis in Alimosho LGA as one of the areas where this is common
“It is not yet known how harmful the drug being used on the handkerchief is. While that is being checked out, it may be necessary to alert members of the public on this new dimension”, the statement said.
