What You Need To Do If You Get Lost In An Unfamiliar City In Nigeria by obembet(f): 7:18am On May 12, 2021
I would say it is quite hard to get lost anywhere when you have GPS enabled navigation maps (Like google maps, Bing Maps, Here WeGo, MapQuest, Waze etc).

However, lets assume that you do not have such a navigation device, or your phone battery is drained off, or worst of all these - you lost your phone...

Here's what you can do:

LAGOS

If you ever get lost in Lagos, just find your way to Oshodi, Berger, Ojota, Iddo or Jibowu, from these places, you can even get a bus going to Jerusalem.

IBADAN
In Ibadan find a bus to Iwo Road. From there, choose anywhere you are going on earth.

KADUNA

In Kaduna, just ask of Central Market (Kazuwa/Kasuwa - depending on your tongue), from there, you can take a bus to Jamaica.

ABUJA

In Abuja, find your way to Berger Roundabout, from there, ask for anywhere on earth. You will get a bus going there.

ONITSHA

In Onitsha, just go to Upper Iweka (pronounced as Oppy Iweka). You can even get a bus directly to Singapore.

CALABAR

In Calabar, simply find your way to Etim Edem Park, you can get to Iceland in seconds from there!

ENUGU

In Enugu, find your way to Holy Ghost Old Park. From there, even angels can take you to your destiny.

KANO

In Kano, find your way to New Road or Sabongari. You can take direct bus to Iraq from there.

PORT HARCOURT

In Port Harcourt, just find your way to Rumuola, Garrison, Mile 1, Lagos, Rumuokoro Roundabout or Waterlines. Even where planes cannot reach, you will get buses that go there from those places mentioned.

ILORIN

In Ilorin, find your way to Post Office or Taiwo Road. You can from these places enter Malaysia

BENIN

In Benin, find your way to Ringroad, New Benin, Iyaro or Oluku junction, you can get a bus that is heading to Italy directly.

YENAGOA

In Yenagoa, just go to Tombia Roundabout, believe me the rest will be history.

LOKOJO

In Lokoja, just find your way to Ganaja Junction, if you cannot find a bus going to where you are going in Ganaja Junction, then you are going nowhere.

UYO

In Uyo, take a taxi to Plaza, leave the rest of where you are going to the drivers.

JOS

In Jos, go to Terminus. From there, you can even get a bus to your destiny.

WARRI

In Warri, find a bus to Effurun Roundabout or Enerhen Junction. From there you will smile to anywhere you are going to.

AGBOR

In Agbor, find your way to Uromi Junction. The buses there can even take you to China without Visa.

OWERRI

In Owerri, just go to Control. They can even control you to ur destiny.

ILESHA

In Ilesha, just go to Roundabout, You can even get a bus directly to Los Angeles

IFE

In ife, just go to Lagere, You can even get a bus directly to California

OSOGBO

Just go to Oke fia, You can even get a bus directly to Manchester

Dear Obembet,


This is really helpful, and I appreciate informative thread like this.


We're tired of seeing threads like;

"Buhari Spits Fire As Tacha Called Him A Failure" or,
"Curvy Actress, Destiny Etiko Tickles Laycon's Future With Her Backside."

An absolutely stupid post.

Someone is lost in an unfamiliar city and you ask the person to find his/her way to so and so.

Why was the person lost in the first place?

Except you dropped out of the sky or tumbled out of a kidnap vehicle, you must have had a general idea of how you'd gotten to your current location.

Look around for a shop, buy something small and cheap to establish a kind of connection with the vendor, then make general enquiries on how to get to where you wish to go.

Hilarious but insightful.

If you are a Nigerian and lost in Nairobi, find your way to Kenya Archives on Moi Avenue and if you mention Lagos while on a call there, a fellow Nigerian will sight you as a Nigerian mama put is just about 5 mins walk away from there cheesy

From Enugu, try and locate Holy ghost park then take a bus from there to your destination.

From Abakaliki locate sperando, then take a bus from there to your destination.

You are wrong about Jos, the right place to go to if you are lost in jos should be;

1. Plateau riders,
2. NTA park,
3, Gada biyu Park,
4. Dariye park.



Terminus is just a market any park around there is illegal.
