Police nab three men who specialize in snatching Uber cars

The operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) have arrested three suspected robbers who lured a UBER driver into the bush, strangulated him and made away with his Toyota Camry, 2006 model.

The suspects were arrested on Thursday morning in Lekki, Lagos, when they were on their way to hand over the snatched car to a buyer.

Daniel Alagor (28), Samuel Effiong (25) had, on Wednesday night, requested for UBER and told the driver, Ekwomi Charles, to take them to Abijo GRA from Jakande Estate, Lekki at around 11:00 p.m.

According to the driver: “On getting to there, they tired a rope around my neck from the back. Then, all of them started punching me till I passed out.

Thinking that I was dead, they took me into the bush and dropped my body near an uncompleted building.

They left beside me a knife after tying me. Thank God, I woke up later. I reported at the closest police station and eventually, I learnt RRS men have arrested them.
