A Nigerian Instagram user, @_jossyann, has taken to the social media
platform to call out a Lagos Uber driver and also warn Nigerians to be
on the lookout for the horny uber driver, who has been identified as Mr.
Oluwatobi. Here’s what she wrote…
“Hi my name is jossyann, a dance artist and a student of university
of Lagos. I have been using uber for 2years now and I have never had
such a devastating experience before. My initial story was a summary,
here is the full version.
On the 28 of June 2017, I started a trip
with Mr Oluwatobi (an uber driver) at 7:57pm at Isolo; my initial
destination was Gbagada, but I changed my trip to Omole phase 1 which
was ok by the driver. My battery was low so I sat in front to charge my
phone. I noticed the driver was chatty and I stopped responding when he
At some point I noticed he was passing through dark
and unfamiliar streets and I asked where we were and he said Bariga. I
got worried and asked him why, he said he wanted to buy me food because
he liked me. I declined and asked him to either drop me at my
destination or I come down.
He continued driving, he then said he
was tipsy and horny that I should cooperate. I started making calls to
friends to come to my aid because I was confused and afraid. He drove
off through Yaba to different locations I was not familiar with (as
shown on the map).
He persisted that he won’t let me go until he
had his way. I called my boss (director) to speak to him on speaker
phone; he did and he advised him to take me to my destination in order
to avoid problems; this infuriated the driver.
I threatened to call the police, after which he started driving fast
and dangerously, at this point I was afraid for my life. He was driving
around town totally off my route still trying to convince me to oblige.
At some point in Ikeja he refused to stop at a police check at this
point I started crying, praying, making calls and my boss called again
and this time he was able to convince him to do the right thing or else
he will be prosecuted.
Thankfully this time he took me to my
destination. A journey of 30mins became the scariest 3hours of my life. I
am grateful to God that I came out unharmed . I will like to make some
clarifications, please continue reading in comment section”
