She said she boarded the taxi to New Benin, unaware that the passengers were members of a gang.
In the course of the journey, she said they asked her to wind down the window. She obliged, not knowing it was a ploy.
When she tried, the glass wouldn’t budge. As she turned to tell them the glass wasn’t working, she noticed they had dragged her bag.
She began dragging with them. When she finally got hold of her bag, she noticed the zip was torn and her 30,000 Naira was gone.
After they were done stealing from her, they tried pushing her out of the moving car but she struggled and screamed for help. She sustained injuries on her leg during the tussle.
A taxi driver who heard her screaming came to her rescue.
The taxi driver said he chased the suspects after he heard Mrs Ufua’s screams. In an attempt to escape, the suspects lost control of their vehicle and crashed into a gutter.
They were then apprehended and the female member of the gang was stripped.
Security operatives intervened before the gang members could be lynched.
