ICYMI: Corpse of Taxify driver murdered by passengers found

The body of a Taxify driver, Gabriel Wisdom, has been found around Abijo in the Ajah area of Lagos State.

According to PUNCH Metro, it was gathered that some yet-to-be-identified persons had contacted Wisdom to convey them to an unknown destination, but while on their way, the passengers allegedly pounced on the driver and killed him in the process.

The suspects, who are still at large, were said to have perpetrated the crime so as to dispossess Wisdom of the car he used for the cab hailing business.

After perpetrating the crime, the suspects dumped the driver’s remains on the scene and stole the Toyota Corolla car.

Wisdom’s friend, Deji Saliu, who shared the story on his Facebook page, said the deceased got the car on hire purchase and was due to complete the payment in December before the events that claimed his life occurred.

Saliu urged the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Panti, Yaba, to investigate the events that led to Wisdom’s death with a view to bringing the perpetrators to justice.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, said the state Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, had ordered homicide detectives to take over the case in a bid to arrest the perpetrators of the crime.
