A Twitter user, Inazghi, has shared a story of a man she came across at Oregun, Lagos, on her way to work.
According to her, it was around 8:30 am and there was traffic on the road to work. Then, she noticed a commotion happening in front of her and decided to roll down her window to see what was going on.
She stated that she saw a man crying and screaming on the road. She found out that he came back from Spain after 15 years and discovered his family duped him of his life savings.
He had been sending money to them to build a house for him so he can use it to make more money, but they squandered the money instead and built nothing.
In her words:
“8.30am: A man is crying & screaming in Oregun, apparently he just came back from Spain & all the money he’s been sending to his people to build a house is nowhere to be found.
“He said he’s been gone for 15yrs and his mother & brothers have nothing to show him.
“People are in traffic & foot soldiers have gathered, I had to roll down to see what’s going on.
“I haven’t seen a man cry this much, he said he feels naked and empty. All his life savings gone, he sent them money to build his personal house and 4 flats so they can earn income.”
