A Nigerian singer on Facebook, with name, Sandra Sabriel Ifudu has narrated how a Taxify driver almost kidnapped her after she ordered his ride. The lady claims that the driver waited outside her gate until 4 am to kidnap her just because the fee for the ride which she transferred to him didn’t reflect in his bank account.
Her narrative reads,
Is Taxify no longer safe for women to use? This idiot of a driver by name Izedomni dropped me off in my house last night,waited outside my gate till 4am in the morning,then came into my compound to kidnap me. According to him,the money I transferred to him ‘has not entered’,therefore I should follow him to d ATM by 4am! to confirm. If his intentions were pure,why didn’t he wait till day break? Why ask me to follow him out at that time? If this is not an attempt to kidnap,I don’t know what it is. The only person I blame in all these,is my neighbour that opened the gate for a total stranger at 4am!
At the time of this report, the driver and Taxify have not released any statement responding the lady’s claims.
This comes weeks after MTV Shuga actress, Dorcas Fapson whose saga with a Taxify driver, Udeh Henry Nnaemeka is yet to die down. It all started when Dorcas took to Snapchat to share a horrifying incident she encountered in the hands of a Taxify driver whom she said drove her to an undisclosed location against her will.
She claimed he even tried to drag her into a building to possibly rape her. Luckily for her, she had a pepper spray in her bag which she used to defend herself.
In a statement released by the driver, he claimed the actress boarded his vehicle and told him to drive without disclosing any particular location she wanted him to take her to.
He obeyed her for a moment before asking again for her destination. He said in a statement,
she got in my vehicle and just as I started the trip I noticed there wasn’t a destination for the trip so I politely asked her for the destination to know where I’m going to and if it will be convenient for me at that time of the night but she refused to tell me and instead asked me to drive out that she will tell me later, I politely refused and asked severally for the destination but she wouldn’t tell me rather she ordered me in a harsh tone to “Move this car”!
He said he felt threatened when she started making phone calls to some people he didn’t know, so he decided to ensure she exited the car. This led to her spraying the pepper spray on his eyes.
I had to struggle with her to get my car keys from her hands. It was in the process of struggling with her, she sprayed a chemical substance (pepper spray) in my eyes.
