But the statement of the passenger did not go down well with the driver who insisted he must collect N250 from the victim.
The eyewitness added that the driver in the process of the argument, hijacked the passenger by the throat which led to a serious exchange of blow.
“The passenger overpowered the driver who immediately rushed to his car, brought out knife and stabbed the passenger indiscriminately until he fell on the ground lifeless,” the eyes witness said adding that the driver was bragging that he came from Maiduguri, Borno State.
