Nigerian Photographer Recounts How He Was Robbed In Broad Daylight In Lagos

A Nigerian photographer, identified as Pipeloluwa, has shared the story of how he was robbed of his money, in broad daylight in a recent social media post.

According to him, the incident happened in Lagos and he lost N55,000 to these robbers.

Sharing the story on his Twitter, Pipeloluwa said;

”Man, I was robbed today. Broad daylight and I couldn’t even do anything. I was so helpless, I’m so sad and destabilized rn. Hate it sm here!

I couldn’t get my client’s job done last week cause I was really sick and was admitted at the hospital. I explained to them and they were kind enough to let me deliver the following week. I decided to do it today, the frame shop doesn’t accept transfer cause I think they have issues w their account or stuff so you have to pay cash. I went to withdraw at the nearby Wema bank and on my way back to the street where I parked my car to pick up my hard drive, some guys on bike accosted me.

They were saying “give me the money” and initially I wanted to struggle with them but the second guy at the back brought out a cutlass from a black polytene bag and I had to let go. They left with the money with me, 55k.

It’s actually crazy and traumatizing cause this has never happened to me before. Last week, my friend sent a video to our Twitter group of how they robbed a guy of his phone somewhere in Lagos(broad daylight, cutlass and men on bike) and he couldn’t do anything.

It was caught on CCTV and that’s how it went viral. I was still telling my guys to stay safe and be extra careful at all times. If you know me well, you’ll know I’m always extra careful and I try to be Street wise too cause you need it to live in Lagos but tbh today’s experience was beyond me. It was a very quiet street and I’m not even too familiar with the area. So I couldn’t shout for help. Ngl, I’m so pained.

These guys weren’t even wearing masks or anything. I saw their faces. I guess they were trailing me from the bank or stuff. It’s crazy tbh.

Please stay safe guys, Lagos is very wild.”
