|Nigerians And Taxi Driver Arrested At A Border Thai Border Province - Picture by olmoRoc: 7:44am On Feb 20, 2018|
Two Nigerian and a Thai taxi driver were arrested after a dramatic border chase traversing five checkpoints.
The Africans were eventually rounded up in a sugar cane plantation trying to return to Cambodia.
The drama began around 8am when a policeman on his rounds saw two black men vault over a wall into the car park at Rong Klua market.
They had jumped over to flee Cambodia.
They jumped into a waiting taxi and the three including the taxi driver sped off.
Police and military authorities were soon informed as the taxi went along the Sri Phen Road that follows the border. In total five checkpoints both police and military were traversed before strips managed to damage the taxi enough to make it stop.
At that point the two Africans bailed out of the taxi and disappeared into a sugar cane field. As they tried to cross back into Cambodia they were arrested.
A bag in the boot of the taxi contained their passports showing them to be Nigerians Reginald Uzoho, 27, and Chinaka Ibemere, 31.
They told police they had been in Vietnam before they left and went into Cambodia. They said they were headed for Pratunam in Bangkok to see a friend.
They clammed up when asked to explain why they had no exit stamp from Vietnam. Police believe they were breaking the law there.
Taxi driver Wan Thongkhan, 57, told police that he was hired by Cambodians for 3,000 baht to drive two men to Bangkok. He said that he was forced by the Nigerians to drive on through the checkpoints.
Police dismissed this story as nonsense as he had plenty of opportunity to stop and give up.
The cops are looking into the background of the Nigerians and the taxi driver to see what they were up to suspecting that it may well have something to do with illicit drugs.
However, it is worth noting that there is actually ONLY one checkpoint in the border province, and that if the driver wasn't the people smuggler, or a go-between the perps and the actual smuggler, he wouldn't have tried to shield them from arrest by driving off. Also, because anything that has to do with Nigeria and Nigerians is almost always sensationalized by the media, and going by my observation, most of the crackdowns on Nigerians begin whenever there's a trade issue, i.e. there was a large scale crackdown when it was announced that expired rice is sold to Nigeria, and there has been one each time there was an embargo on rice importation, I'd implore you to take some aspects of the story with a pinch of salt.
