A Nigerian lady has received a series of backlashes from social media users following her face-off with a driver of one of the cab-hailing services in Lagos.

The lady had taken to her Instagram page @pearlhotti to share a video of her row with the driver on Monday before it was amplified by Instablog9ja where she was lambasted for being rude.

She wrote:

“I ordered for a ride and I and my friend was rushing to the airport to pick up a friend. So my friend was at the Lekki toll gate and I was at VI. We were to meet up together, so I told my driver to speak to her driver that they are at Lekki 1 toll gate and he should tell them the nearest place to meet up and I handed him my phone.

“Mistakenly he told them to meet us up at Lekki toll gate, I laughed and said ‘Oga your head is not there,’ uncle got angry and started shouting, told me that do I look like his name, I was like oga why you dey vex you no see say I dey laugh with you.”

In the viral footage, the angry driver was seen lashing out at the female passenger, accusing her of insulting him.

He accused the lady of telling him his “head is not there.”

During the row, the man ended her trip and told her to get out of his car.

Probably hoping to get accolades for her act after sharing the video on social media, she received backlashes from social media users and has since blocked her IG account following the negative reactions her post attracted on social media.

Another IG user wrote:

This driver is also a human being, someone’s father and husband and son and well. Just because he is driving you should not abuse him. This is how he feeds his family. Please let’s be kind to all humans. Nothing is permanent in this life. What you give today, you get tomorrow. Let’s be guided please.”

“As a proponent of democratic rule, you in the 90s participated in the several pro-June 12 struggles, which led to the enthronement of civil rule in 1999.

“You have since 1999 lived for the people through your sterling public service performances, first as Commissioner For Works and Infrastructure in Lagos state from 1999 to 2006.

“Followed by your emergence as Governor of Osun from 2010 to 2018 and your current position as Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in charge of Interior.

“Through which you oversee very sensitive sections of Nigeria’s internal security like Immigration, Civil Defense, Fire service, Correctional service among other responsibilities.

“RAUF, you are indeed a great descendant of Oduduwa and a Nigerian patriot with incorruptible Pan Africanism for which you are always worthy to be celebrated.

“You are an Omoluwabi per excellence, a down-to-earth grassroots politician with incredibly huge followership, a great promoter of our cultural values and heritage, an icon of people oriented public service and an epitome of loyalty,” Ooni said.

The royal father, who doubles as Council of Obas and Co-chairman of National Council of Traditional Rulers of Nigeria(NCTRN), prayed for good health and longevity for Aregbesola who is the immediate past governor of Osun.

“My dear Ogbeni, may the Almighty Olodumare keep, upholding your entire household as you gloriously clock 63 today.

“We also pray the rest of your journey on this earth shall be characterized by sound health, meaningful long life and immeasurable prosperity,” Ooni prayed.
