Digital Media Practitioner Chydee Narrates How He Was Almost Robbed On Eko Bridge

Digital Communications Professional Chidi ‘Chydee’ Okereke recently took to micro blogging social networking site Twitter to narrate his ordeal in the hands of a traffic robber.

Chydee narrated that the incident which happened at night saw the robber break his window, demanding for his phone at gun point, and threatening to pull the trigger if he failed to comply.

He added interestingly that although his first reaction was terror, it soon became replaced by reckless courage, after somehow he was convinced that the robber would not shoot, and that he could engage him in  combat man to man. He however admitted that his refusal to comply with the gun man was a risky gamble, one that thankfully paid off.

Read his tweets below:

LOL. Almost got robbed tonight. Almost because man broke my window, pointed a gun at me and told me to give him my phone or he will kill me. I didn’t.

Also a bit shook at how unafraid I was in that moment. He could have shot. He could have brought out a knife and stabbed. That was stupid stupid stupid. Chidi. It’s just a fucking phone. 🤦🏾‍♂️

TBH, I’d have given him the phone if it hadn’t fallen under my seat after he smashed my window. But while I was trying to reach for it, adrenalin set in. Looked at his face and thought, this one won’t shoot. The gun might be empty. I can fight him. Stupid gamble, but it paid off.

Funny thing is, there were policemen less than 200 meters from there. But they couldn’t have seen anything because of those Apapa-destined trucks. I sha reported to them, and a few of them moved in the direction where it happened. Didn’t wait to see what happened next.

Finally, @mbuhari, @AkinwunmiAmbode, those trucks on Eko Bridge are the reason I almost got robbed tonight. Many others have fallen victim. Many others will. Their loss, and blood are all on your heads.

Thank God he escaped unhurt. Hopefully, the Government does more to prevent these incidences of traffic robberies.
