lady's phone was snatched in traffic

His post which he shared on his Facebook page read :

“Terrible Lagos! It was a sad one last night around the Old Toll gate, just before Ketu by the pedestrian bridge opposite Motorways.
At about 8:40pm, I saw a guy running and shouting ‘Ole Ole Ole’, there was a very slow traffic and confusion set-in.

To make matters worse, there was this thick smoke coming from that major ‘refuse mountain’.
Moments later, I saw a lady chasing the same guy. I then discovered that the criminal had ripped-off her phone from her.

Of course, the guy disappeared as she couldn’t follow him to the unknown. It was a really sad one as she had to pull back. It was obvious she was in shock.

A couple of weeks back, Mr. Chido Nwakanma ‘s phone was snatched from him at that same spot.

Will the Lagos security officials/ police saying they do not know how to gun these criminals down?

Meanwhile, the bad smoke is still there as at this morning.
