Uber driver who drove off with lady’s bag containing passport and over N1m has been caught.
A first time visitor to Nigeria was left stranded recently after a Lagos Uber driver robbed her of over N1Million. The victim, a South African named Mo (Mongy Mathobela) complained on her facebook and that led to the arrest of the Uber driver.
He was able to drive off with the bag because she was to pick up a document from one Yemi in bakare estate,agungi and head to South Africa. so, as usual, she went into the compound and asked him (driver )to give her few minutes, by the time they came out he was nowhere to be found and he sent her a text saying he drove off to the nearby mosque to pee and he was coming right back but that was the end of the show before they realized he was gone for good.
Mo has been using the guy since she traveled down to Nigeria and she’s a very nice and generous lady. she saw the guy as a young and cool guy and showed support to encourage his hustle.mo would give this guy 50 percent of whatever her fare came to and just last week she said he drove her to balogun or was it ogba and in the process someone picked his iPhone 5 and she had to give him 75k to get a new phone but he didn’t get an iPhone but at least he got a phone with an internet to sort his Uber directory and all.
she gets him food at every outing and made him comfortable. so, it was after the story went viral that his neighbor on the mainland alerted Mo through her DM to come to a particular address on the mainland.then the neighbors alerted others to use cars to block the taxi so as for him not to be able to drive out because already he had packed his stuff and that’s how they were able to arrest him.
