The Taxify driver, Henry Nnaemeka, accused of abduction and attempted rape by Shuga actress, Dorcas Shola Fapson has finally responded to her allegations and told in his own words what he says was what acually transpired between him and the actress.
Read Henry Nnaemeka’s story below as shared online by Twitter account, SubdeliveryTwit:
You recall yesterday, Shuga actress, Dorcas Shola Fapson (DSF), said she narrowly escaped being abducted and raped by the Taxify driver last night.
According to the story she shared on social media, Henry Nnaemeka fully locked her in his car, drove to a random house, then tried to drag her into it.
She revealed she was saved by her pepper spray which she emptied on his face.
Taxify company responded yesterday saying they have suspended Henry Nnaemeka account and access to their Taxify platform. And that their lawyers have petitioned the Nigerian Police and State Intelligence Bureau to take up the matter.
The statement Taxify released read:
Early today, we received troubling news of an incident that occurred between a (male) driver-partner and a (female) rider on our platform where allegations of harassment and violence have been made.
Upon receiving news of this incident, we immediately contacted the rider and expressed our concern to her in person.
Our lawyers have petitioned the State Intelligence Bureau and the Nigerian Police Force to take up the matter. The incident is currently under investigation with these authorities and we are giving all the necessary cooperation.
We at Taxify are committed to providing reliable ride experiences for our riders. Creating a safe and healthy experience is an absolute part of this.
We have zero tolerance for any and all forms of harassment and violence.
It is our policy to immediately ensure that upon such serious allegations – as in this case – the drivers account and access to the platform are taken away, which we have done.
We will be following the case with the State Intelligence Bureau and the Police keenly. We are determined to help see it to a just resolution.
