End Time Uber Drivers

Some Uber drivers have been nabbed after they were found out to be involved in the business of robbing female passengers at gun point in Lagos. 

They were arrested by the Lagos State police command.

According to The Guardian, the drivers, Fosta Rufus, 30, and Franklin Jogbodo, according to the Special Anti Robbery squad boss, Mohammed Sanusi, picked up their targets around Lekki, Ajah and Victoria Island areas of Lagos.

This is the second of such arrest of Uber drivers in Lagos. It was gathered that the suspects were accused of robbing their victims of valuables such as jewelry, expensive phones and cash, and their victims are mainly ladies who go out at night.

Lagos State police boss, Imohimi Edgal, who paraded the suspects at the Command Headquarters, Ikeja, said the suspects sometimes would follow their victims to an ATM machine from where they would force them to withdraw cash at gunpoint.

He added that the suspects have admitted participating in three different robbery operations in the past. “On one occasion the suspects collected the sum of N86,000 from their victim using her Access Bank ATM. They have both confessed to the crime.”

He said that a KIA Rio with registration number BDG 376 EP used in perpetrating the crime and other valuables, which including Samsung Galaxy 7edge plus and iPhone 6 plus, allegedly collected from their victims identified as Nancy Nzuegbo and Eze Chinonso, were recovered from the suspects.

The Lagos police boss said he has directed all Area Commanders and Divisional Police Officers to maintain police visibility in major roads and neighbourhood across the metropolis.

In his confessional statement, Franklin denied robbing anybody, saying it was his friend, Fosta who dragged him into the problem. He said he was the one who introduced Fosta into the Uber cab business.

According to him: “I met Fosta while working with UBA as a driver. I met him again sometime this year. I helped him to register as an Uber driver. It was him who collected the phones that were found on us from some ladies."

*Uber it appears is becoming dangerous!


  1. That's why I refused to surety a friends son that got an uber job,young boys of these days are something else...

  2. When I see people calling patience Jonathan a thief in Nigeria, I smile cos 85 percent if not more of Nigerians are thieves roaming around like innocent people, keep money amd go and return or phones u won't see them again.

    1. But 85% of Nigerians didn't steal billions and still have the guts to warn the president to leave them alone. Mstweeeee

    2. Teddy,a thief is a thief whether he/she stole billions or not!...
      The reason they don't steal billions is because they don't have acces to it!...
      Well said anon 11:59!..

  8. Robbers in Uber disguise. Looking for opportunity to spoil the company's image.

  9. And I don't use Uber, Okada or kabu leggedes is still in top shape mbok

  10. Be alert when you enter any taxi, Uber and others.

    Make sure you enter and the doors are locked.

    Do not make any personal or business conversations on your phone.

    Keep your expensive phone, jewellery and money you just withdrew out of sight. When you get to where you're heading, you can show off all you're worth.

    Be extremely alert. Don't allow the driver to take shortcuts that you are not comfortable with. You may pay more but what's a few extra naira compared to your life.
    Some Uber drivers are extremely chatty, the one I used yesterday was complaining about passengers he had carried till he dropped me in Ikoyi from Ikeja. That was in between his phone conversations.
    I didn't stop him from yapping away because the last one I took that was silent fell asleep on the steering, if not for God, I won't be alive to tell this story.

    Ultimately, I honestly feel very sorry for the brand Uber in this market.
    With the kind of drivers they recruit,it makes it even better to take those rickety yellow taxis with those elderly Ibadan men driving like grandma's behind the wheel.
    At least, you know what you are paying for.
    And your security is better assured.

    Just my honest genuine feedback not meant to rubbish the brand.

  11. Some ugly thieves are spoiling this business for the real drivers

  12. Thats why I dy fear to use this service
