A commercial bus conductor who tried to scam some of his passengers in the city of Lagos by jumping into a canal while he abandoned them on the road, has been met with more than he bargained for.
The bus conductor being held by an aged passenger
According to a bus passenger, this incident happened today, August 5th, in Lagos as he and some others boarded a bus from Ajah to CMS for N250.
He narrated that when they got to Ikate roundabout, the driver and conductor of the bus suddenly decided that they didn’t want to continue the journey anymore and would transfer all the passengers to another bus.
Unfortunately for them, older women in the bus resisted the change. They demanded that they will not leave the bus and it must also take them to their agreed destination.
The conductor tried to resist but one of the women grabbed his shirt and held her ground. Seeing that there was no other way out, he quickly jumped into the canal by the side of the road and refused to come out.
After a while he eventually dragged himself out and returned the transport fare to other passengers who agreed to enter another bus.
