Man Narrates His Tragic Ordeal In Computer Village, Ikeja, Lagos Nigeria: Yesterday I was at Computer Village to return a Samsung phone I had bought with factory defect. After being â€˜allottedâ€™ a parking slot by a tout for an agreed fee of N500, I quickly made my way to Slot, promising to be back in quarter an hour.
Half an hour later, I returned to the car in the heavy afternoon
rain. I met 2 men at the car- the tout and another thickset man
with well-trimmed mustache.
â€œDonâ€™t you know you blocked my car?â€
â€œI am very sorry sir,â€ I said, â€œâ€¦butâ€¦â€ I looked at the tout like â€˜you-could-have-taken-my-number-knowing-that-this-car-would-be-going-out-soonâ€™. The tout looked away.
I apologized again and opened the car door.
â€œYou canâ€™t go anywhere, young man. I already deflated your tyre.â€
Wow! I checked the tyres- 3 of the 4 tyres had been
I went to Mr. Moustache and apologized again. â€œJust give me a minute sir, let me find a â€˜fuckernizerâ€™.â€
I picked my phone to reschedule all my appointments for the evening. I opened the car boot, took off my loafers and changed into my rain boots. I picked the umbrella and hit the street.
I stopped the first â€˜agberoâ€™ I met on the street. â€œBros abeg where I fit find correct pounded yam and egusi for this area?â€
45min Later, I returned to the car trying to look as sorry as possible.
I was surprised to find the tyres re-inflated! Standing by the car was Mr. Mustache and a man dressed in green overall with yellow cuffs- a vulcanizer. They were both wet to their boxers.
â€œOga where you con go since na? Donâ€™t you know I have somewhere to go?â€
â€œAh sorry sir, na â€˜fuckernizerâ€™ I dey find!â€
â€œNo worry, I don find one for you, just pay am make you dey go.â€
â€œThanks sir. Once again, Iâ€™m sorry for the inconvenience.â€
**** By the way, you might wanna try the pounded yam place I visited. Enter Computer Village from Oba Akran (beside bridge), turn left off Otigba Street at the Container Police Post. The shop is by the right. Thank me later. ****
