Andrew said he was under duress as one of the men who had a gun gave him instructions on where to stop and the route to follow.
For fear of his life, Andrew stated that he couldn't do anything when the men began to drag the lady outside after making him stop around the Carter overhead bridge.
The account of the driver who spoke in broken English goes thus:
“I picked her from Chevron, and the other three guys at …when those guys show me his weapon as I was inside, I can’t be myself anymore.
“Fears have come in, so, whatever the man with the gun told me, I do. I followed that Carter Bridge, that overhead bridge, they ordered me to stop there, they say I should open the door, when I open the door, then when they come down, they now start dragging her, when I saw that she was crying for help, actually, I was helpless."
