A young man identified as Bunmiano Barcelona D’greatest has taken to his Facebook profile call out an Uber driver.

According to Bunmiano he mistakenly transferred the huge sum of one million naira which translates into over 13,000 cedis to the driver's account instead of 3,400 naira (GHC45).

The transfer was supposed to be payment to the driver after he transported Bunmiano's friend to a destination.
