A Uber driver, Anthony Okafor, has died while conveying a passenger, said to be a reverend sister, to a destination in Lagos State.

Okafor picked the woman from the Ikeja airport and started coughing and gasping for breath in the Egbeda area, where he stopped the car, according to Punch Metro.

His condition was said to have worsened as some good Samaritans rushed him to a hospital for treatment.

A source noted that Okafor drove a Toyota Camry with number plate EPE 869 GK.

“He was rushed to the Talent Hospital in Egbeda, Lagos State, where he was confirmed dead on Saturday, August 21, 2021,” he added.

It was learnt that no mark of violence was found on his body, which was deposited in the morgue of the Mainland General Hospital.

Another source claimed that Okafor’s remains had been released to his family for burial.

He said, “His death could have been caused by stress.  His wife was also at the scene of the incident to see things for herself.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, who confirmed the incident, said the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, had ordered a post-mortem to ascertain the cause of death.

Ajisebutu said, “The deceased suddenly fell sick while driving. He was immediately rushed to a hospital for medical attention, but was confirmed dead at the hospital.

“Although it is a suspected case of sudden and unnatural death, the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, has directed that a post-mortem should be carried out to determine the actual cause of death. The case is under investigation.”
