A Nigerian man has taken to 'X' to narrate how he had to pay the sum of N60,000 to area boys after the tyre he purchased 4 days ago got busted on the Third Mainland bridge in Lagos.
@ugodre said he saw the N60,000 as a great deal given that he had to choose between a dirty slap, being thrown into the water below or having them seize his iPhone.
He said that the boys gave him a bank account to transfer the money and then helped him remove the bad tyre and fix the spare.
"I’ve been hearing tails of fake new tyres until it happened to me this evening on 3 MB. Tyre is just 4 days old and cost N60k I also paid area boys N60k in “road taxes” to leave safely.
“You know what’s funny. The guys actually gave me a UBA account to make the transfer. Areas boys also have bank accounts. Oh I should also add that the area boys also helped remove the bad tyres and fixed the spare.
“And for those wondering why I gave them the N60k. Well, sometimes you have to choose wisely by cutting your losses quickly and early. When you have to choose between a dirty slap, being thrown into the water below or having them seize your iPhone. You immediately see N60k as a great deal.”
