An American multinational transport company, Uber has responded to the recent threats case issued to a passenger by one of their Ghanaian drivers.
According to the company, they have solid safety measures in place to ensure that every Uber passenger is protected from such dangerous threats.
It could be recalled that, Yen.com.gh earlier this week reported that, an angry driver working with the taxi company, through phone calls and sms threatened the life of a young lady after cancelling an earlier booking she had made for a trip.
The passenger argued that she became stranded and was forced to cancel her booking after realizing that, the driver was not conversant with the route.
This was said to have angered the driver, whose name was only given as Abass, claiming the passenger had wasted his time and fuel, though the passenger said was charged for her cancellation.
Uber in a latest press statement copied to Yen.com.gh disclosed that, the company’s Incident Response team moved in to offer support to the victim as soon as the news broke out.
The company also insisted that, as part of its general principles, it investigates any wrongdoing by its drivers and immediately prevents them from accessing its Mobile App until final conclusions.
“We are deeply committed to the safety of all who use the Uber App and stand ready to assist the police in their investigation," the statement quoted.
The company also assured that, they stand ready to deliver exceptional transport service to the Ghanaian public free from threats
