According to the driver who wants to remain anonymous, passengers have complained that some Nigerians who ventured into the Uber business use it as a cover-up for robbery activities.

The driver who spoke to Class FM said, "You all have to be careful when you want to engage the services of Uber because some Nigerian criminals are taking advantage of the service to attack people and rob them."

He said students of the University of Ghana are mostly victims of robbery incident.

"As a driver, when I see a request and it is coming from a prospective client bearing a Nigerian name, I get alarmed and, so, you all have to be careful.


"They have attacked and rob students at Legon and they are doing it in other places, too. They are destroying our business for us," the driver added.
