Nigerian lady reveals how scrap collector came to her rescue when she was broke

A Nigerian lady known as Adaeze has revealed that she got money from a scrap collector which saved her at a time she was in a state of brokenness.

She took to Twitter and showed off a N1,000 note which she claimed was given to her by a scrap collector she sold an abandoned property to.

The young woman jokingly asked a rhetorical question to social media users about whether they have ever been in a situation where they were broke and a scrap dealer commonly called ‘Iron condemn’ came through by buying something from them.

In her post, Adaeze shared a photo of the money she collected and wrote; “Ever been broke and Iron condemn came through.”

Interestingly, Nigerians on social media shared similar experiences through her comment section.

Meanwhile, CorrectNG reported how a Nigerian man simply known as Orji, has narrated how his girlfriendโ€™s show of ingratitude led to the end of their relationship.

The US-based techpreneur said he used to give her N20k every month for data subscription but because she asked for something else which he could not provide immediately, she downplayed his committment to her.

He said she asked him of what value he is to her when he appealed to her to exercise patience for some weeks so that he will look into her request.

Orji said the statement was heartbreaking and shocking but he knew he could no longer continue dating her after that day.

He wrote; โ€œSome yrs ago, a woman Iโ€™ve done everything for, once asked me while sitting in my car โ€œof what value re u to me?โ€ Simply bcos there was something she asked me to do for her & I told her to give me a couple of weeks.

This was someone I was giving 20k monthly for data subscription. I couldnโ€™t believe my ears that fateful day. And of course, that marked the end of our relationship.โ€
