Abiri Oluwabusayomi, former Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija) housemate better known as Khloe, has narrated her recent “horrific encounter” with a Uber driver in Lagos state.
The reality TV was reflecting on the alleged murder of Oluwabamise Ayanwola, the 22-year-old fashion designer.
Bamise went missing after she boarded a BRT vehicle from Chevron bus stop, Ajah, to Oshodi around 7 pm on February 26.
Her corpse was found on Carter bridge at Ogogoro community, Lagos Island, on Monday.
The state police command also confirmed the arrest of Andrew Nice, the BRT driver, as Nigerians continue to demand justice for Bamise on social media.
In a lengthy Instagram post on Tuesday, Khloe said “similar thing almost happened to me” last week on her way to the airport.
The reality star said she first became suspicious when the Uber driver she boarded asked her to drop her bags in the back seat instead of the trunk of the car.
Khloe disclosed that the car was unkempt, adding that it was “smelling like menstrual blood and weed” while the driver “had a knife under his leg”.
She said the driver locked the car from his side and “started acting weird” when she asked him to remove the child lock.
The entrepreneur also said the cab driver’s action left her unsettled that she pretended to be calling her sister — with the intention to make him think she was trailing them.
Khloe said after initiating the fake call to her sister, the driver stopped by the road and ordered her to come down.
“I had an experience with a Uber guy the day I was travelling and he dropped me on the main road by Farmcity because I faked a call to my sister,” she wrote.
“He had a knife under his leg, his car was smelling like menstrual blood and weed, the whole radio part was removed and stuffed with clothes and he locked the car from his side.
“As we were approaching Farmcity and I told him to remove the child lock and he started acting really weird. Then I sent my sister a message and started forming calls like my sister was driving behind us, was talking about his car and how he’s acting.
“Then he made a U-turn, parked, unlock the car and asked me to get out.”
The reality TV star lamented the insecurity in the country and the absence of surveillance cameras on the roads to combat crime.
“What a country. How can a whole Nigeria not have a surveillance camera on every corner???? At least it can help us navigate some horrible incident?” she queried.
“How can you just not care about us? How can our security system always fail us? Why do we have to die untimely in the hands of our fellow humans?”
