Luck has ran out on an Uber driver who stole a million naira from a South African passenger and her passport before disappearing.

Mongy Mathobela who was a visitor in Nigeria, was robbed after she went to pick up a document from somebody in Lekki on her back to the airport.

The driver was arrested after Mathobela narrated her ordeal on social media.

Mathobela while expressing her anger had said: “I’m a visitor in Nigeria. I went to the bank to withdraw money in Lekki, so he saw the money that I had it in my bag.

"He left me stranded on the road luckily, I had my phone on me because I wanted to buy something on the side of the road. I even bought him food and paid him more than what he was supposed to be paid and inside my bag it was my passport and money 500k naira and $2000.

"Please help me share this so that I can get my passport and go back to my country my flight is on Thursday I do not have a passport. Pls help.”

One of the driver's neighbors on the mainland alerted Mathobela through her DM to come to a particular address on the mainland.

The neighbors alerted others to use cars to block the taxi so as for him not to be able to drive through.

The driver was subsequently arrested and he's currently being detained by the police.
