Shattered Glass, Stolen Belongings and a Stab to the Back – Daratayo Recounts How She Was Robbed On Eko Bridge

Glass was shattered, she was stabbed at the back and her belongings were stolen – a financial analyst, Daratayo, recounts how she was robbed on Eko bridge. With little or no security, people continue to fall prey of highway robbers and this is another call to everyone out there to be careful and safe.

She wrote,

Today, I got robbed on Eko bridge.

Not the beginning of eko bridge, Not the end of eko bridge but RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF EKO BRIDGE!

Today I was mercilessly slapped around, harmed and beaten.

Today, a fellow human being beat me up so bad because I refused to give them what I worked so hard for.

Today, a fellow human being derived joy in stripping me of my hard earned money, bag and personal belongings.

Today, a fellow youth looked at me, considered me a prey and broke my glass windows to rob me and went batshit crazy when I won’t drop my phone or car keys.

Thank you my Nigerian government for doing nothing about the menace that these trailers on eko bridge are causing that caused so much traffic at 6.30am which allowed these miscreants to achieve their evil plans

Thank you my Nigerian government for finally making me lose hope in looking forward to a better Nigeria.

And most of all, Thank you Lagos Government and Lagos Police for lying to us about safeguarding this bridge, thereby giving us false hope that we were somehow safe.

And for those thieves, I wish upon you Zechariah 5:3, Galatians 6:7 and most of all Proverbs 3:33!! Amen! #Lagos
