I was almost kidnapped this morning
I thank God for my life🙏🏽
Now that i am calm,
Lemme talk about how i escaped cos i have heard times without number how people are taken for vanishing this same way
I entered a car from Lawanson to Ojuelegba, the driver asked where i was going after Ojuelegba, i said yaba. Nigga continued driving, the Igbo babe beside me(iono if she part of them) alighted at Ibidun n then we continued to Ojuelegba
Just after Choppies at Ojuelegba, this driver stopped cos someone wanted to come down again, he asked that i come to the front n i did. This is where drama started, the person that dropped gave him one dollar n left so he opened his palm n showed me
He called the person back and asked why the guy gave him 1dollar, the person opened his purse without saying a word n added another dollar making it two n walked off, the driver called him back again n asked him for naira, i started complaining about the time
Driver said i should help him ask the guy for naira, i did. Nigga said he is from senegal n was going to senegalese embassy to change the remaining dollars left with him so he can buy cocoa seeds. I became suspicious n started grumbling, driver asked the guy
To get in the car n he would take him to the airport to change his dollars after dropping me off, senegalese fraud said he gave a taxi guy 200dolls to take him to senegalese embassy but the taxi guy ran away with his money and he would not continue the journey if i got down
See me see wahala o
The fraud continued by saying he only opened up about his dollars cos of me n that he had about 50k dolls to change. I changed it for driver n the okponku that i was already running late for mass, the fraud continued that i should stay back cos that was the
Only way he would trust the driver, driver said okay that i should please follow them that the senegalese fraud would settle me, fraud added that he’d gimme 200dolls for going with them. I just told them that I wasn’t interested in their dolls n that he should just move the car
To yaba so I’d drop n continue my journey to church na so argues start, i sha saw that the driver was about to do central lock so I quickly opened the door and got off, senegalese fraud got down too just as he threatened to, i paid the driver and crossed the road
Senegalese okponku got back in the car and they drove off.
I just thank God that at this point in my life, 200dollars is not my problem and i wasn’t interested at all in sharing their fraud money or whatever.
I think we should all be careful with these private cars especially those of us that work on the island cos thats the only reason why i was comfortable with entering this one on a Sunday morning.
May God protect and guide us all IJN
