Suspected killers of an Uber taxi driver, Sunday Obasi, have started narrating to the police how they committed the act.

Obasi was killed in Lagos on February 1 while his Hyundai Elantra car with registration number EPE676EC was taken away.

The police have, however, nabbed two of the men said to have committed the crime – Humble Peter-Robert, 33, and Gideon Achibong, 36.

Giving an account of the scheme, Peter-Robert said, “I was sitting in front of the car with the driver. We seized and hit him with stones several times. He complained that he was ill. We pushed him off the car, a wine colour Hyundai Elantra, and went away with the vehicle.

“On the Beach Road where we parked the car, we swapped its number plate with that of a Volkswagen Passat car (FKJ 708 CA) parked close to it. We left it for two days hoping to contact a buyer.

“Emma, also an UBER driver, is our leader. He noticed that the driver was operating offline and he decided that we should steal the car from him. The following day when one of us visited the scene where we stole the car, he noticed the man’s remains were already in police body bag.

“We contacted Archibong to assist us in disposing of the car. The buyers we invited indicated that they could only buy the car parts. It was in the process of dismantling the car that RRS patrol vehicle spotted us and arrested two of us. Emma, Dolapo and David are on the run.”

The police Public Relations Officer, Chike Otti, confirmed the incident and said investigation was ongoing while the other people said to have been involved were still being hunted.
