Police arrest killers of taxi driver in Lagos
Detectives attached to the Anti-Kidnapping Squad of the Lagos State Police Command have arrested sus­pected killers of an Uber driver.
The suspects who posed as passengers and killed the Uber driver said they carried out the act in an attempt to steal his ve­hicle.
The duo and one other at large, had strangled the driver, Innevo­sa Emmanuel and disposed him of his KIA RIO salon car with the registration number: KTU 594DM.
The suspects said they always went after Uber drivers with the intention of killing them and stealing their cars, to resell them to new buyers.
The suspects boarded the taxi from Ikeja to take them to Ogba, Oke-Ira during which they suddenly ordered the driver to make a U-turn and take them to Oremeji Street, Obawole area of Ogba.
One of them narrated the inci­dent: “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.-The Authority
