A Twitter user has narrated how a man posing as a bus conductor in Lagos scammed many passengers of their money.
According to the narrator, the man decided to collect transport fare from the passengers who thought he was the bus conductor. Little did they know he was also a fellow passenger.
They became shocked when the driver started asking for his money from the passengers after the man had jumped out of the vehicle mid-way with the money and their change.
The Twitter user wrote:
”The wildest thing happened tonight. The guy seated beside me in the bus I got on my way home helped the driver collect money from everyone and jumped off halfway. We didn’t even suspect anything till the driver started shouting that we should pay up. Lagos is a wild place.
Lmao this guy carried people’s change o. Na driver and passengers dey lament. We thought they knew each other cos he had been posturing like the conductor. He even told the driver to calm down and said ‘we are helping you collect your money’ when the driver first asked.
The worst part was that I was the second to last person to get in. H gave up his seat so I could get in and he sat at the edge. I thought he was being nice. Ashey na strategic positioning the thief dey do. It was actually sad and funny”.
