"I did something in Zimbabwe and I am wondering who will be stupid enough to do such in Nigeria.
We hired a car (Hyundai Elantra 2018) frm Europcar for six (6) months. On my departure day, I drove it to the airport, but the car hire office was closed.
While thinking of what to do, a young man (Jack) who identified himself as a staff of Caresafe taxi service at the airport told me that Europcar have closed the office due to Lockdown.
I gave him equivalent of 300NGN for the call credit. I then parked the car, gave him the key, took a picture of his ID and returned to Nigeria.
Though, I didn't know the Jack and there was no way of tracing him except by his work ID which was not verified, my mind was at rest that he will hand over the car to the car hire.
Despite the poor economy, people still leave their wares outside on the table till the next day without fear. WHO DARE TRY THIS IN NIGERIA?
These people respect the law. For my six(6) months stay, i heard no single report of crime in the city. The police are unarmed except for stick but are highly respected.
If he's my country man, i dare not try that.
I have been suspected and severally interrogated just because I carried Nigeria passport.
This has happened in unrelated places, not because of what I have done but because of where I come from.
Once you identify as a Nigerian, people see you as a potential criminal.
It is time to repair our identity.
We need to work on our value system.
