Twitter user, Omo Alamala has shared the sad story of his friend’s Uber driver who got stabbed by car snatchers who posed as riders.
Fortunately for the Uber driver, the car tracker which he installed in his car was used to trace the thieves and recover his car.

“This guy below is my friend’s Uber driver. A ride was ordered at about 8:40pm on Sunday, Sept 20, 2020. He arrived at the pickup location just after Lagos Business School at about 9pm.
As he started the trip, the 2 guys (riders) stabbed the driver and drove off with the car. They drove off to Ibeju Lekki axis. Unknowing to the criminals, the car had a tracker.
The tracker was used to switch off the engine. The fools thought it was fuel. From the tracker’s voice recording, the car snatchers thought it was fuel shortage.
They had no money to buy fuel, so they decided to sleep in the car till morning as it was very late at night. The Police followed the GPS and arrested the criminals sleeping right inside the car!”
