Following this, her cell phone drooped on the floor and before she could pick it up, a strange person carried it and returned only her SIM card to her.

She immediately began begging them and offered to give them the N3k she had on her but they refused.

She noted that it was like a movie when an 'aboki' arrived at the scene and began bargaining the price for the phone.

When she found out that the N3k would not suffice, she immediately called her husband to come to her rescue.

She wrote:

"2days ago, I found myself trapped in a terrifying situation. Someone pushed me when I was alighting from a bus, and my phone fell down (pov: I was not even pressing my phone, I opened my bag to give the driver money) I was about picking up my phone and I saw a strange person kicked."
