Some Lagos residents have been unlucky this morning as the soldiers on patrol seize their telephone handsets.

The soldiers are stationed at strategic places as President Muhammadu Buhari visits Lagos on Thursday.

The police had earlier cordoned some major roads on Victoria Island. However, the situation became tense as commuters began to trek and in the process they had to make calls.

But while trying to make and receive calls, the soldiers waylaid them and collected the handsets.
