A Nigerian man identified as Olatide has shared his pain on Twitter after a shoe shiner ran away with his shoe in Lagos.
According to the young man, he gave the shoe shiner his shoe to polish for him, and before he could say Jack, the shoe shiner disappeared with the shoe.
“The funniest thing happened today. So I was going to church but my shoe wasn’t polished so I was on one side of the road and I saw this aboki guy, gave him my shoe, I said polish this shoe so when I turn to the other side of the road, you will give me my shoe.
Could you imagine that I turned the other side of the road. I didn’t only did not see this guy. I did not see my shoe. Guy Lagos is wild. Now I can’t even go to church, I’m heading back home.”
