A lady who was a victim of “one-chance” operators in Abuja has narrated her experience on social media.


The lady identified as Titilayo Daniel said she got into a car at Gwarimpa express at 9:30pm, not knowing the occupants were ”one-chance” operators.


While in the car, she was beaten till she bled and her phone, laptop and ATM cards were collected.


The attackers then took her card and withdrew her money while she was still in the car.


Read her tweets below ;


I unfortunately entered a “one-chance” vehicle from Gwarimpa express going to Life camp around 9:30pm, I was brutalized while in the car, my phone, laptop and ATM cards (plus my ATM pin) were forcefully collected and while still in car,one of them went to withdraw from an ATM.


I was later dropped off in Kubwa after about 2hrs drive round the city.


I reported the incident at Gwarimpa Police station and the officer-in-charge told me to get a CCTV footage from the bank they made the withdrawals from, and that they will take it up.


I went to the bank (Gtbank) to apply to see the CCTV footage and I was shown the face of the culprit (which by the way was a very clear picture). I then requested for the footage but I was told they can’t release it to me cos it’s against their code of conduct to give customers.


CCTV footages. I told them it was to enable an investigation and also showed them the police extra, but the man-in-charge said even if it was the Police men or any security agency that came themselves, they would only show it to them and not release it.


I was devastated, and left the bank heartbroken.


Since then, it has been a burden on me not knowing what to do. But I’ll really love that the culprits are caught and my items recovered.


Attached to this tweet is my picture (that night after the incident).I also have the doctor’s report and the police extra.
