A lady, known as Achalugo Bambify on Twitter, has shared a moving story of how she stopped a 13-year-old girl from going on a dangerous blind date.
The story was shared on Twitter where the good Samaritan narrated how she saved a naïve girl from going on a blind date with a man she met on Facebook.
“Yesterday, a girl entered the bus, barely 14 and fragile. From her deposition she snuck out of the house for a blind date from someone she met on Facebook (this info she later told me).”
“She innocently asked me where Olusosun was. I agreed to show her, I wanted to mind my business until her phone rang and she was telling bros that she’s coming to the cinema soon… Me cinema, where? Olusosun ke, I noticed her anxiety with child-like excitement and was triggered to tell her we are stopping at the same place. Oga said he was at the bus stop.”
“When we dropped I noticed a black Benz with shabby looking guys staring suspiciously, her phone rang again and he told her to stop talking to strangers, take a bike and come to xyz address. She looked at me and was ‘I can go from here, I know me place.’ Counselling mode activated.”
“I simply asked for a hug and while hugging her, I told her not to do anything her parents won’t be proud of. ‘You are loved, there’s time for everything and you are so pretty’. She chuckled and I gave her small change with my card to call me if she feels like. I watched her turn.”
“Few steps and she looked back with uncertainty, I noticed the car had left, so I hurriedly stopped her before she climbed the bike. I asked her who she was going to see.
‘Sorry ma, I can’t tell you’
Me ‘well there’s no cinema over here’, bike man join mouth and said yes oh.”
“Finally, we walked further to the bus stop and she explained that it was a Facebook friend and he said he is 17..toh, that agbaya I saw was almost 30. After every explanation, I shared a personal story. For what we know, he could be a ritualist, rapist or kidnapper. I told her to block every contact, and make sure she tells her parents wherever she’s going to. The first red flag was her parents unawareness. Secondly she doesn’t need dates with strangers at such age, she was even 13 after my questioning. We are having a proper cinema date this week at ICM.”
“December is around the corner, it could be a mature lady or even a guy. Don’t go to a location you aren’t sure of, evil is lurking this period. Resist long throat to chop life with strangers. One day I’ll share my personal story when I was 17, stay safe guys,” she tweeted.
