What you saw in welcome address of Lagos is "This is lagos" not "welcome to Lagos"

I will never forget 2008 after 2 years of graduation without Job, I was shortlisted for an interview in a company via my friend in Ikeja (I have never been to the company before o) I put on my suit and a well polished black shoe to match my gorgeous dressing cos I applied as an Accountant.

When I step out of my house I discovered that everywhere is silent and no movement of yellow buses so I meet some stranded passengers in the bus stop and they told me Saka Saula(NURTW chairman) was assassinated this early morning ,so no commercial vehicle will work except I get private car.

5mins after a danfo arrived and pick us in the bus stop but the tfare is triple, that wasn't my problem anyways cos I have to be in my interview centre bfre 10am and it's 8:30am already in Agege. We already approached Otubu close to Guiness when these touts attack our Danfo they beat everybody esp the driver and conductor for refusing to give respect to the dead, I was using Nokia 23100 then before count of 2 the phone has been removed from my pocket and the only address to where I was going for interview is inside and I didn't have my friend phone number offhand.

The guy that remove it passed it to another guy and that one run away but I hold and drag the guy that remove it and I start crying the idiot still snatch the envelope that contain my credentials.... I really suffer.

I was dragging him till one guy call us and I explained everything to him, the guy is their boss. He pacified me and asked me to call my phone number by 7pm, I was like you dey craz? 10am is my interview and the address is in that phone, bro pls tiyin o ni baje!!! I have been searching for job since 2006 'esanu mi' The guy said he cannot get the guy that took the phone away now until evening.... I have no choice than to go back home with sorrow. I called at exactly 7pm and they asked me to come and collect my phone.

I got the phone back but I lost the job which cost me another 14months home before I finally got a job


Awwwwn.

So sorry about the bolded. May God repay your wait with good successes.

I sometimes feel anyone successfully scammed in Lagos is either careless, selfish or unlucky, I Never grew up in Lagos n I don't believe in jazz, whenever I am in Lagos I follow designated routes, I don't look for free ride, or cheap once, I will never allow 2,3 or 4 unknown pple box me in a corner, or follow desolate places inform of cutting corners, I'm not familiar to Lagos so if u ask for directions d ans is I don't know, I have walked up majestically to police stations n officer to ask 4 direction, keep ur gadget where its difficult for criminals to access such as bags n keep it close, bail when anyone tells u o dollars or try to derail u off course, finally be security conscious n shine your eyes at all times.....
NB: pls if they point a guy fake or not pls cooperate n hand over their property to them jejely.
Did you say bag... Just say you've just been lucky
