A young lady has narrated her eerie encounter with a commercial driver in the city of Lagos and alleged that the driver threatened to kidnap her.
A female Twitter user identified simply as Wosi (@chioma_c_okoli), has taken to the social networking platform to recount her experience with a taxi driver in Lagos.
The pretty young lady revealed that not only did the driver threaten to kidnap her after she had made a stop to pick up something, he also made some statements with heavy s-xual innuendos that made her uncomfortable.
She said that this eventually made her scared and she decided against continuing with the ride.
Here’s how she narrated her story in full:
“So my friend Nifemi booked me an @uber ride from Unilag to Ikeja and I got into the car, I was to stop by my friends apartment to pick up something just before heading to my destination, so I needed the driver to be about a minute patient with me.
“I told him, He complained but waited eventually. When I got out of the apartment and back into the car, in the drivers (Taofeek) words ‘You will pay me extra for this time I have waited and if you don’t, I will kidnap you and this is not a joke’ I heard him, ignored, and kept using my phone.
“While I was thinking of the fastest way to get out of the car. He continued by saying he likes to go to the girls hostels in Unilag because the girls turn him on and he always wants to “touch their br*asts”.
“It was too sensitive and suspicious, and I couldn’t continue the journey to Ikeja with the same driver, with fear for my life. So I gently asked him to stop at a hotel in Jibowu (King Celia) that I wanted to pick up something and I’ll come right back into the car.
“He was very reluctant again, but he eventually stopped me there, I got down immediately, picked my bags and entered into the hotel. I sent one of the hotel workers to pay him N1000, and ask him to end the trip and leave, that I wasn’t going with him anymore. Meanwhile the fare was about N400).
“I purposely paid more so he could just leave. This driver Taofeek called me to say ‘You think you’re smart’, I hung up and didn’t pick his calls anymore. I ordered another cab; this time, Taxify. And about 2 minutes on the trip, we saw this same Taofeek guy standing outside his car waiting for me to come outside and he followed the car till we couldn’t see him anymore. This has been the scariest experience of my life and I urge @Uber_Support to look into this.
