A Bolt driver identified as Segun Akinyola has been robbed of a Toyota Corolla car by gunmen who disguised as passengers at the Modacart area of Trans-Amadi in the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.
Akinyola told newsmen that a passenger who booked him brought out a gun and pointed at him when they got to Modacart junction. He added that two others believed to be working with him emerged from a dark corner with guns.
According to Akinyola, the gunmen robbed him of his mobile telephone, an unspecified sum of money, pushed him out of the vehicle and zoomed off to an unknown destination.
“It happened at Modacart roundabout leading to Abuloma (in Port Harcourt). It is a lonely area. That was where some people just came out and pointed their gun at me.
“The one I carried was one of them and he was the one that arranged it,” the Bolt driver said.
Akinyola stated that he had reported the matter to the Elekahia Police Division in Port Harcourt city.
PUNCH reported that the state police spokesperson, Grace Iringe-Koko, however, said she was yet to be briefed of the incident.
