It is very sad that the crime rate is Nigeria is on the high side, as people no longer know to trust or run to for help.

In Lagos, a man just shared his experience on how he was almost kidnapped by a taxi driver. The young man took to his social media handle to narrate his ordeal saying: “Dat’s how dis Uber guy would have succeeded kidnapping me today. I was going to church (gbagada) and I met myself on 3rd mainland bridge, u’re a failure.”
