“Please whatever your instincts tell you, heed to it. I was almost kidnapped this morning at alausa secretariat, ikeja.
This is my story.
I entered a car, which I always do when going to work and immediately the car sped off. It didn’t wait to pick any other person
Prior to me entering, I already felt like entering a bus instead of a car because of al this insecurities flying around.
The car didn’t follow the normal route. It went through other ways.
I was the only one at the back and another guy in front.
He dropped the guy on the road and the guy paid. The driver asked that I move to the front.
So I did. Only for him to move forward and then stop again. I asked why he stopped.
Then he brought out dollar and said the other passenger gave him the money
I was like call him and return it, must be a mistake. He moved forward to speak to the man that dropped
The man was speaking a language I don’t understand
He gave him another foreign money.
I was conscious but was feeling lightheaded.
Then the guy entered once again.
The driver started talking a helping him to change money and all.
I told them to drop me and they put the door on central lock.
I began texting and calling 😭.
Immediately I saw a traffic light, I began hitting the door and they opened the door.
That was how I escaped. Y’all be safe out there. I’m still shaking.
Some of my stuffs are still inside their car but I’m safe guys😭
Lagos will not be the end of me by God’s grace.”
