I once donated blood for someone’s mum in 2016 and collected 5k. The woman died 2 days after the donation and this man made sure i paid back the 5k, he said “your blood killed my mum”

Never to be forgotten
Let me drop the full story.

I went to General Hospital Gbagada to donate my blood freely and not for any fee as my normal routine was then. That day to be precise, as i was entering the hospital, two men cornered me up to know my mission...
I was scared but I instantly summoned courage and told them my mission. One of them went in to bring another man who happened to be from UK who explained the situation to me, he said his mum is 80 years and she needs blood but the blood bank wants payment...
So i said i will drop mine for free. I asked how they know that’s what i came for and they pointed to a man who knows that i do come for that.
The UK man introduced me to his elder brother, a typical Egba man and the three of us entered the blood donation center...
They brought me in as if i came to donate for their mum, and i went with the story too. I donated and they bought me 1 Maltina and milk.

As i was leaving the hospital premises, the UK man ran after me and dipped 5k in my pocket, i tried to reject even though i was happy...
but he wanted me to have it. As i was about leaving, his elder brother, the Egba man ran after me to collect his share of the 5k but I didn’t give him. He collected my number and said they would like to contact me that i’m a good man bla bla bla. Two days later...
Mama died. This man called me that his younger brother wants to see me, i met him at TBS thinking the UK man wants to thank me the more only for the Egba man to hold my trousers that Mama is dead and it’s my blood that killed him. Egbami....
Before i knew it. He was shouting at TBS and asked for the 5k to which i went to the ATM and withdraw for him.

That was my last time donating blood. I still think about it.

That’s all that happened

Agege Bread didn’t originate from Agege, it was mere coincidence and pure cruise. 🤗😂🤣

In the year 1911 when the Queen visited Lagos on her first official visit, she became hungry for bread the next day because that was her best snacks....👇
She tried getting it in Nigeria but she couldn’t get so she flew in some world best bakers from Brazil and West Indies to make her sumptuous bread. They came in and work started immediately. She enjoyed every bit of breads they made.....👇
4 days after their arrival, the Queen was to host all the Obas in South West, so she asked the bakers to make a very long bread as long as the banquet table so the kings can be cutting it to eat whenever they are hungry....👇

Overrated areas in Lagos to live in (A thread)

1. Ebute Metta East

The most useless area in Lagos Mainland, poor electricity, no car parking spaces, the street is where they park cars, cultists everywhere, living rooms be looking like rat house (very small), security is...👇
...very poor. The area smells like shit all the time and people still jump on it just because of location. Yet, a room self contain looking like garbage is 400k, a tiny 3-bedroom flat on Abeokuta street is 1.2m.

Who is doing you people?
2. Yaba

Is it light you need? Poor

Security? Garbage

Good house? Never

Tiny apartments? ✅

Expensive without car park? ✅

Agency fee? Skyrocketed

The only thing Yaba can boast of is proximity to CBD.

Yet, a tiny miniflat is 400k, a 3-bedroom flat is 1.2m.

Ha, mogbe
