Uber driver strangled to death in Lagos

The Lagos state police command have arrested two men,  Osaro Egbomrewen and Michael Eyeoekpe, in connection with the death of an Uber driver , Innevosa Emmanuel, who was strangled to death at the Ogba area of the state recently.

Parading the suspects before newsmen today, the state police commissioner, Fatai Owoseni, said the suspects had posed as passengers and ordered for a taxi using the Uber application.

The deceased had arrived their location in Ikeja and was instructed to take them to their destination at Ogba, Oke-Ira.

During their trip, the suspects and one other who is currently at large, suddenly ordered the driver to make a U-turn and take them to Oremeji Street, Obawole area of Ogba, where he was strangled with a belt and his KIA RIO salon car marked KTU 594DM vehicle was taken away.

The suspects had planned to sell off the car to an unsuspecting buyer. However the police began to trail them and tracked the vehicle after a complain was laid of a missing Uber driver and his car.

One of the suspects who narrated how they carried out the act said
“I and Michael met at Ogba where I went to drink and we became friends. I told him how difficult things were for me that I needed to relocate to Benin to start all over again. It was at this point that Michael told me about a deal that could fetch me some money that we could get a car and then sell it to his boss. Michael then told me about one Alex (Emmanuel) who had a vehicle and we agreed to meet the following day. Since then we had been meeting and discussing how to buy the vehicle. On the fateful day the Uber driver came, I was with Michael in his office and his friend Destiny was with him but I don’t know if he discussed the vehicle deal with Destiny. Around 9:30p.m, we called the Uber driver to come and pick us at Tantalizer eatery at Ogba. I and Destiny were inside the vehicle with the driver, but Michael was outside while I was holding the belt. Immediately I put the belt across the driver’s neck, Destiny dragged the belt and we strangled him. When we were satisfied that he was dead, we took his corpse to Oremeji Street and dumped him in front of a church around 10:30 p.m., without anybody noticing us. After killing the driver, we took the vehicle to Michael’s boss to sell it. The buyer then inquired from us where we got the vehicle from and Michael told him that we killed the owner. The buyer then said we should take the car away and Michael said we should take it to his house and park it outside, before taking it to another buyer in Benin. Later we were tracked to Benin, arrested and brought back to Lagos”.
The state Commissioner of Police said they would soon be charged to court.

The world as a whole is risk,similar incident happened here in AMERICA couple of months back. But in this case it was the driver killed a female passenger on lyft. Lyft is another transport platform like uber in AMERICA. Just saying this to make people in Nigeria to know that some thing that happened in Nigeria also happens here even worst.RIP to the dead.God protect us all.

You guys should begin to understand the length these politicians (carting away money meant to better the life of the common man) have pushed the hungry masses. Hunger is making people kidnap and kill and politicians are carting away money. I never liked Buhari at first but I NOW LOVE him for exposing these wicked murder- contributing politicians.They all have hands in these killings.

How can they even try to steal an Uber taxi??? A car that can be tracked.

Plz is it true that freeborn bislam is dead? That his name is Oghenetega Akpovwire?

Funlola Ojelade said...

They didn't realize it could be tracked - because they're so dumb. The only thing is, they didn't need to kill the guy: if they just scare him, even with a knife, he'd have left the car for them. They're just a bunch of blood-sucking demons.

Those guys should be kill immediately, they dumped the driver body the street after my street, that led to hole community crying.they kill him and remove his eye.....too bad. What is a car that make you to kill your fellow human being.
