|Nigeria Uber Driver Stabbed To Death Overseas by Bigbamzz: 11:34pm On Mar 04, 2019|
The Nigerian man who was fatally stabbed inside his car in The Bronx on Saturday night drove for Uber, the ride-sharing giant said in a statement Sunday.
The for-hire driver, identified by the New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers, as Ganiyu Gandonu, 27, from Ogun State, was found bleeding from his neck and torso inside his Toyota Camry around 9:10 p.m. along the Hutchinson River Parkway East in Baychester, cops said.
Investigators have yet to announce a motive or identify a suspect, but, on Sunday night, police released new surveillance video of a person of interest wanted in the fatal stabbing.
Police said the video shows a man dressed in all dark clothing. The suspect ran off from the scene. Ganiyu was found stabbed in the neck and chest in his car. He later died at Jacobi Medical Center.
“I know for sure that he got no problem with anybody. He start this job. He worked. After work, he’s home. He don’t go to parties, met friends, go to clubs, nothing, nothing nothing,” said his widow, Latifat Alimi, said.
Alimi told The Post that before the deceased left for work, he lamented, “I’m tired, but I have to go and make money.”
