Godwin was quoted as saying that “He (the missing person) left his house for his commercial driving activities at about 7:30a.m on the 1st of February 2023.
"He drives a Toyota Corolla which he registered with Bolt Rider company for the taxi activity. When he did not return and his phone numbers did not go through, my mother, who was staying in his house at the time, raised the alarm.
"The family’s effort to know his whereabouts proved abortive, hence we reported to Meiran divisional Police headquarters. The Bolt Rider Company where he registered the car for the commercial use was contacted and the company provided the Police some information to aid in the investigation.
“On observation, the driver’s door sliding glass was broken and fluid suspected to be blood was seen on the right side of the driver’s seat. Around 14th of February 2023, the Meiran Police decided to transfer the case to a special unit under the CP at Lagos state Police Command Headquarter Ikeja, for further and advanced investigation.
"The police at the state Command promised the family that a thorough investigation would be carried out. But as weeks rolled by and no information forthcoming, my mother and the entire family were in panic.”
On Saturday, the corpse of the missing Bolt driver was reportedly found around the Ketu area of Lagos by police operatives.
