A bus passenger was on Monday, Dec 16th arrested by Edo State police officials for allegedly killing an innocent bus driver over the weekend.
The young commercial bus driver identified as Eze was believed to be in his late 20′s while the woman that killed him is 38-year-old.
Last Saturday, Eze died when his bus passenger strangled him while holding on to his manhood.
The incident was said to have occurred in the early hours of Saturday after the bus driver carried the passenger to the junction of Ohovbe Road, Off Benin Agbor Road, Ikpoba Hill for N40, but the woman entered the bus on argument and refused to pay the N40 instead she paid N30. This angered the driver and when he requested for his balance she refused, this angered the driver that he started cursing the woman calling her names.
Angered by the name calling, the female passenger then held the driver’s neck while still inside the car. People then gathered to settle the dispute and begged the woman let go of his neck. Moments later, the woman returned to meet the driver who had his seat belt on and held his neck with one hand and used her other hand to hold his manhood and started pulling it.
The man begged the woman to leave him but the woman was even more angry by this time, passers by intervened again but it seems the woman was bent on venting out her anger.
When the driver tried to come out of his car, he fell to the ground and started stretching and gasping for breath. People around rushed the driver to a nearby hospital while others whisked the woman to a nearby police station. The young man reportedly died few hours later.
