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.

I thought I was the only one who noticed the fluidity of his writing. The question is, how on earth did he end up as a bike man? At OP please don't let the Nigerian system bury your talent!

If you report you might be implicated.
Also if an investigation is carried out, you maybe labeled the get away rider.

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!

Such runz is common in most organizations. They siphon diesel & in most cases, the managers are accomplices.

Welcome to Naija where almost everybody is a criminal. Most of us are actually worse than the politicians.

But, this is naija where the best brains ride Okada and the dumbos are political leaders!

@OP, thank you for this script! Your fiction's trending and is on the front page now (**clapping). Well done, what a story!

So to the main reason why you're here, what kind of job are you looking for?? I know you probably read Mass Communications or English.

Just be careful ,imagine reporting to the manager that might also be an accomplice to the theft and you being labeled the real thief ,Ko ya loook away o if you want peace...
did you read the story at all?

He can lodge the report without implicating himself. He has nothing to lose.

However, his motive for reporting the crime is wrong.

OP sounds too educated for a commercial cyclist. I wish him success in your endeavours, and hope his prayers are answered in due time.

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.

Are you for real?

If your face is visible on the CCTV, there's nothing you can say to prove you're not his accomplice should the police come for you. And for those asking why someone with his writing skills is riding okada, you're obviously not aware of where you're living. There are first class graduates who are carrying certificate around for years, while the other ones are hustling at alaba and upper iweka. Going to school and coming out with a certificate is not the thing, it's your ability to transform whatever skills you've acquired into a money making venture, that's the koko

Didn't you see where he mentioned that he reported to the hotel mgt. via mail?
Re: How A Thief Rained Insults On Me Before He 'Escaped' by Dreal1247: 9:24am On Mar 28, 2022
For carrying him when you know that he is a thief is a proof that you are also a thief. If he is captured while on your bike, you may even have to loose your bike . They have to conclude that you are friends in crime. Be warned.

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.

Some graduates ride okada.

I know one. He graduated from UNN Metallurgical/Materials Engineering department

After all, hope he still paid you.

OP, I salute you. See how eloquent you were... I don't need any magician to tell me you're a graduate and very intelligent. Please can you share your email with me here? I don't need to ask what you studied or which college did you graduate from. See you, doing an okada business but a lot of your peers are into yahooyahoo and ritual killings that would end up ending their lives abruptly. They don't want to work.

By the way, you took a great risk. Thank God he didn't shoot at you, knowing that you've already marked his face and destination. Don't bother reporting the case because police would even make the matter worse. Dey do your business jeejelly until your status changes for the better and avoid that route, for now cos the walls have ears. By the time the case is reported, so the neighbours wouldn't think you're his cohort and police would start dealing with you...some people couid have sighted you unknowingly. Every day for the thief, but one day for the owner...it's a local adage. He will surely face his comeuppance.
