Gunmen disguised as passengers have snatched the Toyota Corolla of a Bolt driver, Segun Akinyola, at Modacart, Trans-Amadi, in the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.
The distraught driver said he had picked a young man, who booked his ride, not knowing that he had sinister motives.
Akinyola said when he and his supposed client got to Modacart Junction, the passenger stopped him, as two others believed to be working with him emerged from a dark corner with guns.
The driver said the gunmen robbed him of his mobile telephone, an unspecified sum of money, pushed him out of the vehicle and zoomed off to an unknown destination.
“It happened in a lonely area. Some people just came out and pointed their guns at me.
“The man I carried was one of them and he was the one that arranged it,” he stated.
He said the incident was reported at the Elekahia Police Division.
The spokesperson for the state police command, Grace Iringe-Koko, said she had yet to be briefed about the incident.
