Bro, country hard o, thief tells man he followed to ATM and found N210 in his account


ATM man

A Nigerian man has narrated his hilarious yet freaky encounter with some street robbers while he was returning from the Automated Teller Machine (ATM) point on Wednesday.

The man took to Twitter on Thursday to share his ordeal via his handle @Assistant_BF.

He narrated that he had gone to the ATM to check if his dad had sent his monthly stipend, but he left disappointed when he found out the money had not been sent.

He added that what he thought was a disappointment because he was cash strapped, turned out to be a blessing in disguise for him.

On his way back home, he said he encountered some street robbers who ordered him to empty his wallet, but when they didn’t find any cash on him but his ATM card, one of them volunteered to follow him to the ATM point with the aim to withdraw money from his account.

He said his account balance shocked the thief who felt disappointed.

He narrated:

“Yesterday, I was walking back from the ATM gallery to my lodge. My face was scrunched up with angry lines. The money I was expecting from my Popsi hadn’t arrived yet. At the T-junction just before Melody Lodge, a certain dude with a nasty scar above his left eye approached me.

“At first, his gestures seemed harmless. A smile. Then a ‘bros hwfa?’ I said I was fine. Took his hand in mine for a tight handshake. Tried to maneuver, but was pulled back by his hardened hand.

“Everything happened so fast. His guys from behind an uncompleted lodge. A knife. I was circled by his gang of miscreants and asked to empty my pockets. Because there was no money in my account, I had no money on me. Just my empty wallet and ATM card.

“The ‘once-friendly-but-now-dangerous-rogue’ went through my wallet, saw the ATM card & asked that we walk to the ATM. With a parched throat and body convulsing with fear, all I could say was OK. We arrived the ATM gallery without much trouble.

“I walked in front while he followed behind. His warnings still ringing in my head, ‘if you try rubbish, I know where you dey live, I go find you and I go beat nonsense commot for your body.’ ‘Guy type your pin before I cut your vein,’ he whispered.

“I typed in my pin instantly. Then clicked on the ‘Check Balance’ option. I wasn’t ready to get any scar or blood gushing from my body. The guy looked at my balance then looked at me, looked at my balance again then looked at me, his angry face slowly softening, his eyes became liquid with pity.

“He looked at my balance again, then at my face. Shook his head from side to side, sighed, then walked away, leaving me with his last words, ‘Bro, country hard o.’ My account balance was N210.”

Tensions have been mounting between Greece and fellow NATO neighbour Turkey over Ankara’s exploration of potential gas fields in the eastern Mediterranean.

Turkey said it had sent three research vessels to the contested area and plans to keep them there until Aug. 23, a move Greece has described as a provocation.

Ankara returned to the drilling plans following a suspension in July to open the possibility of a negotiated solution.

DISCO urges tenants to verify electricity bill before renting apartment



The Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) on Tuesday urged potential tenants to always verify electricity bill status before renting apartments in Kano, Katsina and Jigawa States.

KEDCO gave the advice in a statement signed by its Head, Corporate Communications, Alhaji Ibrahim Shawai, and issued to newsmen on Tuesday in Kano.

He said that the advice was necessitated by the huge unpaid electricity bills by out-going tenants in the Kano Franchise area.

“It has been observed that many tenants pay a percentage of their bills while some even refused to pay or skip payments.

“This has sadly accumulated huge unpaid debts which are often left unpaid when such tenants are packing from those houses.

“It is unfair to heap the huge outstanding electricity bills on people that did not enjoy the services, customers must take responsibility for their bills in the overall interest of the power sector.

“This has become imperative in view of the observations made by the field staff of KEDCO and the need for incoming tenants to avoid inheriting bills of services that were never rendered to them,” he said.

Shawai enjoined customers to cultivate the habit of paying their bills in full to avoid leaving behind huge bills which might create issues for intending tenants, KEDCO, and landlords.
