The man was arrested after he stole N1.8million from a passenger.

According to reports, the suspect, who is a native of Ogun State, was said to have picked his passenger, identified simply as Mohammed, at Wuse Zone 6 area of Abuja for shopping, before taking him to a hotel where he wanted to lodge.

As the victim entered the hotel to book a room, leaving his bags containing his cash and other belongings in the taxi, the driver made away with the passengers belongings.

The helpless victim alerted the police at IRT, who trailed the suspects and arrested him few weeks later.

Speaking after he was caught, the man said he was pushed to steal by the devil. He explained that he suspected that the victim had money in his bag because he didn’t go to the bank or use an ATM throughout their trip.

“I gave N200,000 to my girl friend and I also gave my sister N80,000. Then I bought a car for myself which I intended to use for my business, but before I knew what was happening, I was arrested. I regret doing this and I hope my passenger will forgive me.” he pleaded.
