“Na we rob you that day” – Lagos thief says as he runs into victim

A young man has taken to social media to share his two-time encounter with a thief that robbed him of his possession in Festac, Lagos state.

The guy known on Twitter as @datchughuy, said he fell victim to a robbery gang three weeks ago and just recently bumped into one of them.

According to him, the robber recognised him when he was in his car, so he tapped his window and informed him that he was the person who robbed him sometime ago.

@datchughuy wrote; “I got robbed in Festac. 3 weeks after, one of the thieves saw me, knocked on my glass and hailed me, then said to me “you remember me?? Na we rob you that day”.”

Netizens found the story amusing and flooded the comment section to inquire about the seriousness of the matter.

@isntayo; And the cray thing is that I don’t even find this hard to believe. Is it not the same Lagos where they’ll rob you and ask you to say you’re not angry and you love them?

@ill_nojie; If you tell oyinbo this thing, them no go believe 😂😂😂

@ridbay; Thief dey remember your face? Maybe you’re the only one he robbed that year… Or He lives in your area and he’s been seeing you often before and after robbing you.
