Uber Driver Damages Passenger’s Phone


An Uber driver has allegedly broken a female passenger’s phone in an attempt to beat her up in Lagos.

The incident was reported on Facebook by one Femi Famutimi, who claimed the passenger was his friend.

He said trouble started when the driver asked the passenger to convert the trip to “off book” and the proposal was rejected.

“During the trip, he then requests that the trip be made ‘off book’ and she was to pay N10, 000. My friend objected to this and then he got angry. He started screaming that he had no time to waste and that she was wasting time. He then grabbed her phone and her bag and tried to punch her”, Famutimi narrated.

He added that the Uber driver returned his friend’s damaged phone and escaped after the timely intervention of passersby.
