Police arrest airport taxi passenger for attempted car snatching

The Police Command in Lagos State has announced the arrest of a 35-year-old passenger who attempted to snatch an airport taxi from its driver.

Mr. Benjamin Hundeyin, spokesperson of the command, confirmed the arrest to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Lagos.

Hundeyin said that the case was reported to the Alausa Police Division on June 11 at about 1:40 a.m. by the taxi driver.

He explained that the driver reported that at about 1:20 a.m. on June 11, while he was on a driving service in the Chevron area of Ajah, he was stopped by the suspect, who pretended to be a passenger.

He quoted the taxi driver as saying that the suspect requested that he take him to the shrine in Agidigbi, Alausa area of Ikeja, and after agreeing on the fare, they both started the journey to the destination.

“On getting to the Mobolaji Bank Anthony Way, by 7UP Alausa Ikeja, the suspect, who was sitting beside him, suddenly brought out a knife from his bag and attacked him in an attempt to snatch his Toyota Camry car.

“In the process, the driver sustained a deep knife cut on his hand while trying to struggle with the suspect.

“He quickly raised an alarm, and some good Nigerians came to his rescue while the suspect took to his heels.

“However, after a hot chase, he was later arrested by the anti-crime team of Alausa Police Division,” he said.
