See me see wahala today ooo, I was in a hurry cos I was late for work, didn't want to use the pedestrian bridge, so I decided to take the easiest way by crossing the road. Halfway through, a plain colored KAI official caught me and said I'll have to go to their station with him.
I ran, didn't even think about it, then he started chasing me with a few of his colleagues, they were faster and caught up with me, handcuffed me, and dragged me towards the black maria, while I was crying at my stupidity and where I'll get 25k from
APRIL FOOL. Lolz. I hope I fooled you shaa. Abeg if I didn't, manage am like that. Lolz
Anywayz here is the real gist. Two years ago I had a job interview at Ojuelegba and I was so late. Had just 30minutes to get to the company. I rushed to Ojota bustop but didn't want to use the pedestrian bridge. I know it's for safety but with my calculations, it would be longer. So instead I took the shorter route which was the express. I had already crossed the road and was already close to where I'll buy the BRT bus ticket, that's were d KAI guy nabbed me.
"Madam you have to come with me" he said.
Chai! I don enter. Knowing what was at stake, I began to beg. I don't think I've ever begged anybody the way I begged that man as I followed him to the black-maria vehicle. I even started crying.
"Sir please I don't have 25k, I lost my job and going for an interview now. Please don't let me loose this golden opportunity. Ejoo sir". What won't we say when trying to get out of a tight corner.
All my plea seemed like it was getting into deaf ears, but I didn't stop oo.
Later the man stopped and asked what I'll do to save myself. I was almost late for the interview, and had only 1,500 Naira on me. Told him what I had, he said I should give him all.
"Haba oga, that's not fair. How then will I get to my destination?"
I begged him and he told me to slip the 1k into his hand as if I'm shaking him. After I did that, the yeye man asked me to give him my number. Can you imagine that? After wickedly collecting more than half of the money I had on me, he was asking for my number. This man must be really high on the gum he was chewing. But since I was already in trouble and was avoiding further trouble, I gave him a fake number and hastily walked away before he tried the number. Na him sabi.
So you see, I wanted the fastest way and ended up loosing my hard earned 1k, Lolz, and even spent more time begging him than the time I would have used to climb the bridge and down. Wasn't a smart move at all neither was it a safer move. So use the pedestrian bridge, be safe.
