Lagos State police have launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of a passenger in a Bolt car in Lagos.

SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the spokesperson, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) about the inquiry on Wednesday in Lagos.

He stated that on Monday, a Bolt car driver (name withheld) reported the death of a passenger in his car to the Ilasan Police Division.

According to the driver, he received an order from the customer to transport him from Osapa London, Lekki to the Ikate area of Lekki.

“The customer screamed and shouted’my heart’ while in transit.” His mood shifted instantly.

“The customer was rushed to a hospital at Jakande 1st Gate, Lekki, and later to another hospital also in Lekki, where he was pronounced dead,” Hundeyin said at the police station, quoting the Bolt driver.

Police, according to Hundeyin, visited the hospital, photographed the deceased, called members of his family, and deposited the body to the Infectious Diseases Hospital mortuary in Marina for preservation and autopsy. (NAN)
