I left Lagos for Australia Via Abu Dhabi on Wednesday on Etihad Airways, I checked in my 2 suitcases, had issues with illiterate immigration people then began my 25hours journey.

I have arrived Sydney yesterday (Thursday)', below was how I found one of my suitcases with some personal items gone!!

Make a note of stolen items then approach the airline and Sue them to court.

Wow! no airline can't be trusted anymore but you should have kept those personal things in your hand luggage. it is well sir

Sometimes, customs and drug enforcement officers use all means necessary to get access to the contents of a luggage to check for drugs and contraband. The onus rests on you to prove that the personal effects you claim to be missing were actually there in the first place. You can claim compensation from the Airline for damage to your luggage though.

I don,t feel bad at what was missing cos they were personal stuff that don't really worth much but are new like belts, snickers etc. Its just the embarrassment i felt standing with those white people looking at a Nigeria's suitcase into. It could have happened in Ikeja before take off or Abu Dhabi when I changed flight.

Its just the shock and disappointment of thinking it could have being done in my home county
