A NOTE OF WARNING TO TRAVELLERS WITHOUT A PRECISE KNOWLEDGE OF THEIR DESTINATION

About two weeks ago, a Senior lecturer at the Federal University of Agric, Benue State, visited her relative in Lokoja,
Kogi State.

She arrived Lokoja and called her host for direction.

Her host told her to call an okada man and give him the phone so she can explain the address.

She did exactly that, explaining to the okada man how to bring the guest lecturer to her place.

And that was it all. There is no trace of this lady till today.

However, two days after, a call came through, demanding for
₦500,000 ransom.

The money was arranged and duly handed over.

The phone went off till today; and the lady lecturer is still missing.

We all do this once in a while, trusting unknown okada drivers to help us deliver our visitors or find our direction.

Please it is time to stop it.

They have started taking advantage of the trust.

Tell your visitor to stop at a designated point, take the pain to go and pick him or her up.
