Adventures Of Oko Ashawo The Uber Driver - 21

See me see wahala oh..




I waited for Monday with excitement because i wanted to resume work so badly...

I had missed all my female customers and the drama that sometimes follows a pick up or drop off....

My first Job on Monday came from a woman who sat at the back of the car with her little baby ...

I dropped her off at the foodstuff market and made to return but I was frustrated with the traffic situation that had built up on both ways. 

Everywhere was overcrowded and nothing in sight looked like social distancing and i could spot only a few people with face masks....

It was a scenario out of a bad dream


The woman Forgot one of her bags at the back seat and I called her line immediately but the phone rang in the bag at the back of my car. I opened up the bag but only found the phone and some of her baby things..I wondered how i would contact her because there was no ID...


While still in traffic, some guys who looked like ‘area boys’ ran to me and said they had been trying to get my attention. They told me  and that the woman I had dropped off had forgotten her bag in the car and was on her way to meet me.  

On hearing that I parked by the roadside waiting for the woman to join us to collect her bag,but a police van passing by stopped and the leader of the team immediately arrested me and said my parked car caused obstruction and disturbed the flow of traffic.

I protested and tried to explain to them the reason why I was waiting there but all my explanations fell on deaf ears. As i was about to be taken to the station, the woman came with her baby and picked up her bag but the policemen arrested me anyway......

Las,Las,I had to settle them and free myself with a whooping 5k because they threatened to charge me to court,which would mean more trouble and more money...


As I left the station, I vowed that i would be very alert from henceforth and check to make sure no one forgot anything in my car...And even if they forget anything,I will face my face!

Let me still be thinking if I will work during the day time or codedly at night...

  4. Well as a driver you should have found the right spot to park that does not obstruct traffic while the area boys waited for the woman to arrive. Keep assisting passengers who may forget stuff, but you should be more vigilant about rules of the road.

    3. Anonymous just face front with your grammar biko.
      Language is all about communication and nothing more, it was cool when Americans adulterated English language, but it becomes a sin for us to do same.

      we are not writing any test on English language here.
      Las las we all go dey alright, And hope you graduated from Yale, Harvard or oxford yourself.

  8. Oko Ashawo,
    I was enjoying what you were writing from the onset of this posts
    but you suddenly turned to promote sexual immorality; I don't know why.
    Bear in mind that some teenagers read this blog. Even adult ladies are so
    gullible, impressionable and vulnerable.
