A university student has described his encounter with armed robbers as “the wildest thing” after they took the groundnut he was eating and then advised him to stay away from bad groups.
From the narration of the victim who happens to be a student of the University of Port Harcourt in Nigeria’s Rivers state where the incident took place, he was not harmed by the bandits.
According to him, he had no valuable thing on him at the time of the robbery, so the criminals took the groundnut he was eating and left him in peace.
A report by Correctng.com said the man with Twitter username @Unofficial_DM shared his story in response to another tweep’s question about wild experiences in Port Harcourt.
The Twitter user whose question led to the revelation asked: “What’s the wildest thing your eyes have ever seen in Port-Harcourt?”
Then, @Unofficial_DM replied: “I got robbed at gunpoint inside Uniport, I had nothing on me so they took the groundnut I was eating and advised me not to join a bad gang in school.”
