‪Robbers kill Taxify driver, sell his car for N350k‬.

Two of the robbery suspects arrested by the operatives of the Lagos police RRS, for killing a Taxify driver and snatching his vehicle, have confessed that they formed their robbery gang in Kirikiri Prison.

‪The suspects, Simon Tyozemda, 27, from Benue State and Lucky Friday, 24, from Delta State were arrested on Wednesday, 14th March, 2018 with two long knives inside a UBER operated cab, which they had planned to kill its driver and steal.‬

The gang leader, Simon had through his girlfriend’s UBER app ordered a Taxi at past 11:00 p.m. last week. The suspects plan was to lure the driver to a desolate location, kill him and steal the car.

The suspects were taking the driver to a lonely place on Lekki – Epe Expressway, Lagos, when their vehicle was stopped by RRS officers for a stop and search. The officers noticed one of the suspects hiding a long knife.

Investigations revealed that the duo ex-convicts, who were released between December 2017 and January, 2018, from Kirikiri, had sometime in February, 2018, in a similar manner snatched a Taxify car, along Badore Road, Ajah at about 2:00 a.m, after killing its driver, Godfrey Ovie.

The suspects sold it to one Mohammed Usman for N350,000. Usman had only paid N100,000 and was to move the vehicle to Jigawa when RRS Decoy Team arrested him.

According to Simon, an erstwhile security guard turned stylist in Badore “I met my colleague, Lucky Friday in Kirikiri Prison. Our first operation was where we killed Ovie. I stabbed him in the stomach twice and I dropped him off the vehicle on the road in Badore, Ajah at after 2:00 a.m. .
.
We threw away the knives and bought new ones for the fresh operation we were arrested for. Before killing him, I placed the order to Taxify cab to pick us up at Lamgbasa, at past 11:00 p.m.”
