    I am already tired of this country. Sorry you had to go through that. Sorry that people are just wicked fools here. Sorry you could not find queer friends when you needed to. I hope your pain goes away one-day if it hasn’t already. Thank you for sharing your story.

    One thing that baffles me is why do they send someone else to pick their victims up?

      I think it’s because they have given their victims the impression – whether by their words or pictures – that they are well-to-do, you know “ogas”. And if a picture was sent, of course the victim will expect the person he saw to come and receive him. So its better for them to send someone who will bring you to see the “oga” that you were getting to know on WhatsApp.

    So I want to know if you gave them the money the next day?

    I’m really sorry but with these repeated MO and the fact that some areas in Lagos have been known countless times to be their work areas, this kito thing shouod really have ceased.

      No, i didn’t give them any money, i was able to lock my iPhone some days later, by then they were already texting people on my phone while posing as me and asking people for money.

        They are so poverty-stricken, it’s almost sad.

        I’m glad you’re fine though.

    Wow.. what a sad story.. your naivety got the best of you indeed. I’ve been to Nigeria one time a many during the holidays, and this is coming from a guy that has his face pic on the profile. So it wouldn’t take long for my attackers to recognize me. However, if you’re not in or around the island axis , farthest Ikeja there’s no chance of us meeting.. Cant be half-assed!

    I visited Nigeria early this year from the UK and chatted with a few guys on Grindr; I only met one of them. Although I had been told by friends that there are guys that deliberately set people up but I did not know the scale of it. If most of the guys I chatted with did not start the conversation by requesting for transport fare when we meet I think I would have easily fallen into their traps.

    People living outside the country should always be careful when meeting strangers and if possible meet in public and in the company of someone.

    Such a sad story… I faced something similar 3 years ago… some days to Christmas like this. Funny enough, if you had come to me to say that you wanted to go to such areas for Nacks, I’d have dissuaded you but that’s how me I carried my legs there… Konji is a bitch sha… I got an invite days ago to some of our blacklisted areas… me and the person flow well but it just can’t happen… we would both be fine… my outlook now is that shey there are people around you na.. make una nack una self, set una self up… my hands will manage… junior is better safe than injured… one never knows when they would step up their agendas and begin to do worse… let us all be mindful… run away from Mazza Mazza, satellite, festac, Iyana iba, Ejigbo, ikotun, okokomaiko… and yes, an article today said even verified people who have been referred to you by friends can even change and kito you so we all need to be careful.. we need to grow our discernment levels such that at the slightest buzz within we are cancelling meets… just do it and learn why later.. life isn’t a rehearsal… protect yourself. I’m grateful for KD.. just began reading it religiously last month… maybe if I had started years ago.. I’d have been spared from my experience that scarred me for a while… them no even gimme tfare… had to beg for it from someone at the nearest bus stop.. I got home at 4 or 5pm and just slept till the next day… pls let’s share our stories especially teach ourselves how to recognize such people even if they move their locations from these red or black zones. Cheers mateys!
