Gunmen disguised as passengers attack Rivers Bolt driver, snatch car

Gunmen disguised as passengers snatched a Toyota Corolla car from a Bolt driver in the Trans-Amadi area of Rivers State's Obio/Akpor Local Government Area.

Segun Akinyola, the distraught driver, told reporters in Port Harcourt that he picked a young man who booked his ride, unaware that he had sinister intentions.

When Akinyola and his alleged client arrived at Modacart junction, the passenger pulled out a gun and pointed it at him, while two others believed to be working with him emerged from a dark corner with guns.

The Bolt driver claimed the gunmen robbed him of his phone and an unspecified amount of money, pushed him out of the vehicle, and zoomed off to an unknown location.

“It happened at Modacart roundabout leading to Abuloma (in Port Harcourt). It is a lonely area. That was where some people just came out and pointed their gun at me.

“The one I carried was one of them and he was the one that arranged it,” he stated.

Mr. Akinyola stated that he had reported the matter to the Elekahia Police Division in Port Harcourt city.

When contacted, the spokesperson for the State Police Command, Grace Iringe-Koko, said she was yet to be briefed of the incident.
