How A Thief Rained Insults On Me Before He 'Escaped' by HopeSpencer: 12:56am On Mar 28, 2022
I saw a thief in action two days ago. It happened at the main gate of a 4-Star hotel called BEGONIA hotel in Oyo town. The hotel is located along Oyo-Ibadan expressway.

About 8:20 pm that day, I was passing by the main gate of the said hotel when a guy standing in front of the gate signalled to me for a ride; I'm into Okada riding business. The street was without any passerby at the time except me, who was loitering to pick up passengers. The guy asked me to wait and he quickly went back into the hotel and resurfaced about 3 seconds later with a loaded 50 litres jerrican probably filled with diesel or engine oil. He quickly sat on my bike, dragged the jerrican, and placed it on the passenger's foot rack.

"Speed off in this direction", he shouted at me without telling me his destination let alone giving me the chance to negotiate the price for the journey.

"To where?" I asked.

"Express", he shouted at me again with the air of mounting irascibility.

That 'Express' he mentioned is a trailer park along the expressway, a thriving market for bunkered petroleum products. The direction he asked me to take was not straightforward. We had to follow some obscure streets before getting back to the expressway.

Then the insults began when he asked me to increase speed. I told him I was being cautious to avoid an accident because his heavy load was not balanced and I was using great efforts to steer the bike to safety. Then he said other riders have been engaging in high speed despite the load with ease.

Speaking my mother's tongue, "Your ilk should never be found as an Okada rider because only old men approaching the grave ride this way. I needed to get out of sight within split-seconds and you were acting like a dumb rider", he said.

He later asked me to stop in front of a shop, took the loaded jerrican inside and came back 5 minutes later. He told me his new destination, while raining more invectives on me. I had to be patient with him so that he could pay his transport fare in full -- someone that could boldly steal in a location with CCTV cameras may decide not to pay to me the amount of money I was yet to tell him. You don't need a soothsayer to tell you that the guy, in connivance with an insider, just stole something from the hotel.

I checked the hotel's website for a contact through which I can report the theft or whatever that is, and I found an email and phone numbers probably under the manager's control. If they are putting their CCTV to good use, they won't need me to report the theft. I was not trying to report the theft as a good citizen; I needed to get back at the thief because of the insults I suffered without being able to reply him. Good riddance!

Hopefully he eventually paid, right? Reporting a crime in some situation might backfire and it's a cruel world out there ampa. Let the hotel do their job, they'd trail and prolly get him someday. For the insults, you should be use to that now I mean, whole bunch of people like him ride with you daily I bet.

A thief insulting you is the best thing ever to happen to someone. Because it gives you this motivation to go stealing so that you can insult someone too.

What if the hotel manager is Also an accomplice why not just look away
He paid you your money so your intending action is unnecessary

You write well (compared to the average Nigerian of today’s educational process)

Consider taking some online lessons on fiction writing and possibly start writing.

Nicely scripted ... good conflict both internal and external..the resolution was none existent tho as we didnt get to find out if he paid you or not.

I dont believe the story tho but I enjoyed the read.

You tried your best not to sound stnpid. I know the shop where he sold his loot and his final destination, which is a gated apartment -- probably where he lives.

You lack the ability to comprehend a simple write-up. You can't easily come to a conclusion that the person is a thief in that situation. The hotel almost filled to the brim with merrymakers at the time judging from the blaring music at the open spaces in the hotel compound and security guards were stationed there.

I was into writing, fiction and nonfiction. If you have no money for publicity or connection, nobody will notice your works.

Good.

Have you tried online publishing?

Have you tried researching your target audience and their literary style?

Dont give up and don’t conclude that it’s about connection.

Create a Twittter page for example dedicated to you your writing styles. Open a simple blog (dont put those rubbish ads pls)

Just continue writing.

Build a follower-ship. Dont think about monetizing for now.

With time, you gain reputation and then money can come in.

Your grammar is topnotch for an okadaman. Meanwhile, you shouldn't have carried him on your bike in the first place. What if you were chased and caught, you'd be labelled an accomplice.
