Police nab Uber driver’s killers

Two suspected robbers who allegedly killed an Uber driver and stole his car have been arrested by operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of Lagos State Police Command in Aboki Estate, Lekki, Lagos State.

In a statement signed by the Lagos State Police Command spokesman, CSP Chike Oti, the suspects were arrested while removing the parts of the stolen Hyundai Elantra car with Reg. No. EPE 676 EC for sale to a scrap metal dealer.

Oti said the arrest was carried out following a directive from the Commissioner of Police Zubairu Mu’azu that the RRS Commander, ACP Olatunji Disu, should fish out the culprits.

He said investigations by the Police revealed that an ex–convict and bus conductor, in company of three others now at large, had conspired to hijack an Uber car and sell it off.
