Don't take anything Tonyin street or cleg street serious my brother

I attended this same interview last year.
Let me tell you how its gonna play out. There's this short man who will serve as the gateman, he'll be the one to check you in. He's gonna be a little bit rude so you guys can talk down at him.
Eventually when the purposed interview is gonna start, they'll tell you to wait a little bit. This gateman will now go and change into a nice dress. He'll now tell you guys that he's the CEO if that agency. He'll tell you stories of how he first travelled to Dubai and all that. The other guy will tell you how we was earning 400 naira as a labourer in a day, how his now the bread winner.
The Human resources manager will brain wash you. And last last having spent 5 to 6 hours, they'll tell you that they are just in need of 20 lucky person. And the rest of you will be feeling one kind.
They'll now tell you guys to pay 5k for a material for a training program, that after the training program, they'll employ you.
Omo that's how I spent up to 8hours there that day. Thank God I ddnt pay ooo

That's is not true, you know Google can mislead sometimes. Popular Toyin street at Ikeja I know has double lanes but this particular one is not. Though, I mapped the same address 4b Toyin street and it took me to 2 Olayinka Bamgbose street. so, what do you have to say now it's different street, the same location and same building with yours.

@OP just try your luck but make sure someone accompany you to the the venue and make it clear to them that you came with someone in case they have bad intentions over you, I didn't say you should tell them, just use style let them see that someone is outside waiting for you.

It doesn't appear like a genuine job offer IMO. It's probably a multi-level marketing company or GNLD etc... but you can give it a trial and let us know what's up after the "interview" wink

my brother na fake, I used Google map to check for the address, this particular 4b toyin street, is an empty compound, like the house there has been demolished and the land fenced with corrugated sheets, there is nothing there, I decided to check Google pics again, and I saw "list of confirmed fake commercial ventures" from our Almighty nairaland, guess what sir?

This same 4b toyin street is the site of MADE HILLS SOLUTION, and it was a thread back in 2018 to earn people that made hills solution is a scam.

Omo, woo, make I just dey my house jeje cheesy

I uses Google map a lot. Most of the Google points for addresses in Nigeria are not accurate. Lagos is fair but still not 100% accurate. So, there are times the location for an address on Google map will fall on another property on the same street in real life

The individual that asked about the job need to go do a reconnaissance trip to the area where the address located without stepping into the place.

Thank you baba, I appreciate your effort to make extra research for me and others that would come across this page.

When I initially did the Google map thing on toyin street,I couldn't pin point which is 4b, na one three story building keep coming up, until I decide to out 4b, and Viola the shining sheets were staring at me, I navigated along and around and there seems to be nothing significant in that street,except some schools and one other super market like that

Thanks to Google and nairaland

Google map is updated periodically and you could miss something if you depend on it. The company may have established there before the map is updated as Google photos are one year old and even the street maps are update periodically not live. Give it a shot.
