The Police in Lagos State have arrested three youths for the murder of an Uber driver, Morenikeji Stephen Oluwaniyi.
The operatives attached to the Meiran Police Division nabbed the trio over the death of the 27-year-old. They made away with a Toyota Corolla car.
The suspects, Rilwan Nasiru, 27, Sodiq Taiwo, 23, and Oladimeji, 20, booked an Uber, lured the driver to the Meiran area and strangled him to death.
Afterward, they dumped Oluwaniyi’s body on the Abule Egba bridge, along the Lagos – Abeokuta expressway.
The stolen car has registration number KSF 830 GX. Detectives swung into action following a report by the victim’s fiancée and tracked the criminals to their hideouts.
