“Increase In Fuel Price Pushed Me Into Armed Robbery” – Lagos Bolt Driver Who Robs His Passengers


The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a 29-year-old Bolt driver, Jeremiah Adeniran, for allegedly robbing some of his passengers.

Adeniran, in an interview with journalists on Friday in Ikeja, confessed to the crime, stating that the hike in fuel prices led him to commit such an offence.

“Before, I could do 15 trips a day, but after the rise in fuel prices, my business was no longer moving as I wanted, so I ventured into robbery,” he said.

According to the suspect, his two other accomplices always stayed on the road to carry out the robbery.

Adeniran, who claimed that he had only robbed his passengers on three occasions since he started last month, said he was arrested on Saturday when one of the victims sighted him and raised an alarm.

“On Saturday morning, I entered a shop, and I saw the lady I picked up and robbed a day before. She instantly recognised me because I was not putting on a nose mask. She raised the alarm, and that was how I was arrested and taken to Ikotun police station,” he said.
