Where it happens: Lagos in Nigeria. The robbers take advantage of the traffic gridlocks especially at the selected streets and avenues. Riding on motorcycles (popularly known as Okad), the rider will approach you to help you beat the heavy traffic.
A friend who visited Lagos from Nairobi escaped by a whisker when he sensed danger and immediately disembarked on seeing a traffic police officer.
How it happens: The Okada rider will speed away, pick an accomplice and while in a safe distance you will be robbed of all your valuables.
Quick tip here: Never resist these thugs since they are normally armed with a matchete or a blunt object. Those who resist obviously face the wrath.
What to do: Use a public means of transport where possible. Due diligence especially in Toyin Street and adjacent places.
