Woman Narrates How She Was Robbed In Traffic On Eko Bridge While Other Road Users Looked On

   

 

Presently, things are difficult in Nigeria and we are nearing the festive period. There are desperate people who will do anything to celebrate the season, hence, the need to be more careful and security conscious.

An Instagram user, @tasalahq narrated how she was robbed in traffic last night on Eko Bridge while onlookers made no attempt to help.

She said,

The most traumatising thing that has EVER happened in my life happened this evening. After an amazing day at @tfdseries , I was stuck in traffic on eko bridge, literally 5 mins away from home.

Next thing I know both the front and back windows of my car were smashed in by armed robbers. My driver was driving and I was in the back. There were 2 on each side and 2 on standby literally just grabbing everything they could from the car. My handbag and another bag. One even grabbed my wrist as my phone was in my hand.

@bsrasaki@fifidilly this was while I was chatting with you guys. It happened so fast I could not even comprehend what was going on. My driver immediately got out of the car and told me to get in the drivers seat and drive home immediately.

I was so shaken I couldn’t move at first but had to snap out of it. The saddest part is that no one tried to help as my driver attempted to hold one of them down. There were so many cars and people on the road but everyone just looked on. I thank God that we are both safe, alive and well.

Everything that was lost was material and the car can be fixed. I’ve heard these stories before but in my 4 years of living in Nigeria, this was a first for me. Apparently these things happen more during the festive season. Please let us all be extra careful and vigilant.

These are hard times in Nigeria and people are desperate. Keep safe!! I’m just super grateful to God that we were not physically harmed. The thieves can enjoy rocking my handbag and my possessions for all I care 😔 #staysafe#Nigeria

    Have been part of an experience like this too,on a smaller scale—my colleague and I were held up at Law School roundabout on V. I. Guy materialized from nowhere as she drove us home—lived in Lekki then.It was like a scene out of a movie,and as in this case nobody stopped to help.It was early evening,about 6 pm,so there was still daylight and people could see us.. shaky experience!

    Happened to me sometime ago. Since then, when in traffic, I try to stay on the middle lane.
    Jesus is our protector though!
