The convoy of Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu saved motorists around Ojota inbound Alausa on Monday.
Sanwo-Olu arrested a gang of hoodlums notorious for harassing road users in traffic regardless of the time of day.
Police officers and Department of State Services (DSS) operatives attached to the governor disarmed three machete-wielding thugs.
The attackers were caught red-handed while trying to forcefully drag a man out of his vehicle.
Sanwo-Olu warned traffic robbers and other criminal elements that there is no hiding place for them in Lagos.
Also on Monday, the Lagos State Task Force carried out a raid on motorcycle (okada) riders at Second Rainbow and Toyota Bus Stops along the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway.
More than 100 motorcycles were impounded. Last week, 200 were seized in a similar operation.
The actions followed the government and police ban on commercial bikes on highways and a number of areas.
