Deception Of Interstate Bus Managers And Drivers by StPete: 8:15am On Mar 30, 2015
It is now quite a worrisome trend that many Interstate buses deceive passengers to board their buses only for them to drop them off half-way.

These drivers deceive their unsuspecting passengers that they would be carried off to their respective destinations only for them to be taken to a place like 'Oore' and be asked to wait for another bus that would take them to their destination. Not only are passengers charged more for such trips, time is wasted cos the passenger(s) has/have to wait for hours unending before such buses are completely filled up for the trip. Most times passengers are then forced to miss their scheduled appointments or even get to their destinations at very late and dangerous hours. It'll even be more terrible for first time travellers who don't even know their destinations.

Interstate buses like Edegbe, Vicolins, Uhuomba, Peace etc have been regular culprits

Very Very annoying... If u aint going my way, why wud you decieve me into boarding ur vehicle?. This is very common in the West And East.
Another very popular scam is the one that u see like 10 people in a vehicle and u are like Thank God its almost full....Only for like 7 people to drop like 20 mins later after u have paid ur fare...so painful

I think it's high time the Transport Regulatory body check into the excesses of these Interstate bus drivers before it becomes a norm.

OP, this must have been painful when it happened. But you guys shold have made your annoyance known and refused to pay any additional money, especially if you were much in number.
