A Nairalander Robbery Experience by champion69(m): 2:16am On Apr 12, 2015
I do read about robbery experience of people here on nairaland and I guess some peeps do learn one or two lessons from the stories been shared here, for that reason, I decides to share my own experience so nairalanders can learn some lessons from it also.

I experienced this sometime in February this year, it was on a bright Thursday morning, my friend and I where off duty so we decided to carry out some activities that has been pending due to our tight work schedule, among the activities we slated to carryout was to collect our PVC and change two tyres in the car. For those familiar with Abuja, we headed towards Wuse zone2 to collect our PVC unfortunately the INEC ad hoc staff there said our card isn't ready yet, on our way leaving the INEC center, I sighted a Firstbank building and we had a third party cheque of #150,000, I drove to the bank so as to withdraw the said amount. When I got to the bank premises, the security man on duty requested I pack outside which I did by facing the car towards the bank's fence.

My friend and I walked into the banking hall and in no time we were done with the transaction and out of the bank, my friend was with the money in a small nylon (the type banks normally package money with), as we stepped into the car my friend kept the money under the car sit of where he was sitting.

Because of the position of the car it was imperative I must reverse the car to proceed with my other engagement, so I reversed and in less than 500 meters drive, I started hearing sound from the passenger's back tyre, I stopped and told my friend to check what was making the noise , he checked and told me it was a bathroom slippers that had a nail that has pierced the tyre and that if he removes the slippers, the tyre will go down completely, I looked ahead and saw a Total fuel station where they also sell tyre, I made a u-turn in front of custom headquarters and entered the fuel station and parked where they sell tyre and also does wheel balancing and alignment.

My friend alighted from the car to call the tyre seller, I also alighted but just stood behind the car, in less than a minute I was standing there, my instinct just told me to look behind me,when I did, I saw the door of the car I just alighted from open, which I was very sure I closed and saw a man walking away from the car, immediately I screamed, he just ran towards a bike that was waiting inside the fuel station, that was how they zoomed off, he has already picked the 150k, I tried chasing them with the help of car buying fuel, but due to they were on bike, they were able to manoeuvre the traffic.

I finally found out that they were the once that planted the nails behind the tyre knowing fully well that I must reverse when leaving.They pierced three 4inches nails through a double folded bathroom slippers then used black nylon to conceal it before placing it behind the tyre. They were watching my friend and I as we left the bank, they saw that the money was with him and they also observed that he kept the money under the sit.

Guess you guys learnt one or two lessons from this story, so that you don't fall victim to their evil antics.

one just have to be careful when coming out of bank with money. That small nylon that banks do give, doesnt help matter too, as it exposes one to the public that s/he just made a withdrawal
