A good Samaritan has cautioned well-meaning Nigerians, asking them to beware of a couple of young boys claiming they need help only to end up stealing from you when you offer help.
Emmanuel Owuala shared photos of the young boys who station themselves at the Udoumana traffic light to sell sub stories. He said they told him they needed money to buy pure water and start a business. Emmanuel took pity on them and gave another young boy some money and asked him to go with the boys to get them the pure water they needed for their business, but on the way, the boys dragged the money from the other boy Emmanuel gave the money to, threatened to beat him up, and ran off with the money to buy a “concoction” instead of the pure water they claimed they needed.
After Emmanuel shared the story, other social media users resident in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state also said they know the boys and accused them of criminal activities. One Edidem Macauley claimed one of the boys once met him when the keke napep he was in stopped at a traffic light and he tried to snatch his phone from him.
