His tweet read:

“A whole Lagos street boy like me… London boys nearly run me street this morning.

While at the Bus stop checking my map to see when the next bus 🚌 will come, a guy on a bicycle 🚲 snatched my phone “Cheers mate”, and sped off.

It’s today I know that I still have mad reflex.

The way I ran after him on the main road ehn, even the cars had to stop… he thought he was sleek by not using the bicycle lane, thinking I would give up once he infiltrates the cars on the main road.

The moment he realised I was very close to catching up with him and I was going to use my umbrella on his head, he dropped the phone on the road and zoomed off.

It’s why I will never trust all these South Eastern London boys who go about with durags and face covers on bicycles.

Anyways, I will soon leave this London for you people. 😔”
