    Taking a bus would have a better option but then again maybe his clients in Abuja were running out of patience so he had to fly hehe

    I dont think its fair to label all Nigerians scum or to point fingers at foreigners. Each nation has good and bad people its just that journalists are sensationalist and use the persons nationality as a keypoint. There can be 100 stories of crime on news24 but when its a foreigner it will be a big issue what about the other 99 crimes committed by south africans..
