Meanwhile, previously reported that a Nigerian man identified as Dr Dein Braide narrated how he helped an Uber driver who bashed his car on Thursday, June 25.

The man with the Twitter handle @alabo_braide took to the social media platform to narrate the experience which he said humbled him.

He said he was unaware that the driver was driving one-way and before he realised it, the driver ripped off part of his car bumper.

Dr Braide said his mechanic came to the scene to assess the damage and said it would cost 105,000 naira to fix the car.

Part of his tweet read: "He drives to my estate and parks the car. I take pics to avoid unnecessary claims and then I see tears.

"My wife hears him tell someone in a call how he only managed to make N2600 the whole day. She walks up to him and give him 2k for transportation. On our way up to the apartment, she tells me to give him back his car.
