A man who claims to be a pastor has been arrested for snatching an Uber driver’s car in Lagos.
The man who claims he is a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), was arrested after he reportedly snatched a Toyota Corolla from an Uber driver in Lagos.
According to the Uber driver investor who shared the story on her page, the “pastor” had tricked the driver into checking a credit alert at an ATM by 4a.m. The driver was said to have obliged, leaving the ignition of the car (bought less than 2 months ago) on, giving the car snatcher a chance to zoom off with it.
The Uber investor called out the self-acclaimed pastor on her social media page after the car was tracked and retrieved at Sagamu in Ogun state. The Pastor is now in Police custody.
