A Nigerian man who identifies as Celestocalculus on Twitter has recounted how he was almost robbed by traffic robbers who attacked him at Ijora area of Lagos.
According to Celestcalculus, the robbers were incapable of removing anything from the car as he got out of the situation before it got worse.
”Attempted traffic robbery at Ijora. Lagos gave me a very warm welcome.
Got home unscathed & they didn’t succeed in taking my phone, after breaking both my side glass. Their crazy met an even crazier crazy. Thankfully I somehow got out of the situation before it got worse.
