2 ride-hailing service drivers to face grand jury following alleged sexual assault

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Two ride-hailing app drivers accused of sexual assault will have their cases heard before a grand jury.

Ademola Ajibade and Ibrahim Hamid were charged with second-degree sexual assault for two individual acts of alleged assault.

According to the Monongalia Sheriff’s Department, Ajibade was working as a Lyft driver when he allegedly assaulted a victim in September. The individual did not remember what happened but said she remembered a man on top of her.

Deputies accused Hamid of assaulting a separate victim after a night of drinking. The woman said she remembered a man on top of her in the back of a car. Hamid was driving for Uber at the time.

Police investigated the claims, linking a vehicle to one owned by Hamid, who denied knowing the victim. He waived his preliminary hearing.
