The taxi driver, Iniobong, is currently in police custody where he is awaiting a court date.
The victim who goes by the name "Juicy J" on Twitter took to the microblogging site to report the incident which soon led to the driver's arrest.
According to the rider in a series of tweets, Iniobong had reacted to a comment she made about being a lesbian by pressing her nipple.
This was his way of testing out a theory regarding the inability of lesbians to give a reaction when an opposite sex touches sensitive parts of their body.
She wrote, "You will not believe what just happened to me.
"So I'm in a taxify & the driver keeps taking many many. sexual orientation becomes the topic & i say I'm a lesbian.
"This guy reached out to me & squeezed my nipple. you can't even imagine my shock he said 'lesbians don't react to male touch so I was curious'".
In a video also posted by Juicy J, the repentant taxi driver was seen begging her for forgiveness but his appeal fell on deaf ears.
He didn't have to wait very long to get the result of his highly unacceptable behaviour.
For him, it was a clear case of "Curiousity killed the cat".
Iniobong has been taken off Taxify's cab hailing platform and now in police custody where he will have more than enough time to think about his irresponsible behaviour.
