Taxify Suspends Driver Who Sexually Assualted Drunk Passenger
E-hailing taxi app, Taxify Nigeria, on Thursday pulled a driver off the road for allegedly confessing to sexually assaulting a drunk passenger.
Taxify made their intervention known via their Twitter handle, @taxifyng, when a Twitter user, Oreoluwa Fakorede shared the confession of a Taxify driver on his handle, @OreFakorede.
Fakorede tweeted, “A Taxify driver just confidently told me that he picked up an inebriated passenger and molested her sexually while she was under the influence. Apparently, the woman, riding in the front seat, was wearing a short skirt and her privates were exposed. “I fingered her,” he said.”
“Of course, there’s no proof. Of course, he’s blaming the woman’s ‘carefree’ behaviour for his criminality. It’s ridiculously easy to get away with abuse in a society that doesn’t respect people’s rights to their own bodies.”
