A young Nigerian makeup artiste simply identified as Daizy, has told a terrifying story about how she narrowly escaped being used by some persons now suspected to be ritual killers in Ibadan. She told her story on her Twitter page.
According to the lady, the incident happened yesterday, January 6th, 2019. She explained that she was invited to carry out a makeup session for a client in Ibadan and she happily went.
However, when she got to the hotel she was directed to, things began to appear strange. She saw only one man in the room she was sent to and wondered why. When it got to 6pm she decided to leave but the man asked her to hug him. However she refused.
Upon her refusal, the man threatened to deal with her if she does not calm down and comply. He then ordered her to go int the toilet, perhaps to remove her panties for him. It was at this point that she realized that she had been set up and began a frantic effort to escape. She finally managed to do just that.
Below is how she told the story:
“In this era of yahoo boys/ritualist, no Nigerian lady is safe. Whether you are materialistic or not is no concern to them. I was at access bank last November or thereabouts and this guy came down from a Jeep and said he’s into magazines and they are auditioning for the face model to cover his next issue. I told him I’m not a model that I’m actually a makeup artist and If they need one they could holla at me. He said they already have a makeup artist that works for them but if he sees anyone that needs a makeup artist, he would contact me. I gave him my business card.
“Hmmm, fast forward to 3rd week in December, he reached out and said his cousin was coming from abroad and they need a makeup artist for the wedding which was to take place on the 2nd Saturday in January (this week). I was happy sef that it was a great way to start this year. I chatted with the client during Xmas period and he( the said groom) said we’ll meet once I’m back to Ibadan.
“I got to Ibadan yesterday and when I got back from church the client said I should contact his cousin to give me the info on where to meet. I messaged him n he said I should take bike to ojoo. On getting to ojoo, he said I should give phone to the bike man n he described where we would drop. That one said 300, I was confused if it was that far. I thought it was Ojo I was going. I was on the bike n d bike kept on moving for long, the place was really far.
“We sha got there, I called the guy n he said someone will come pick me, a lady picked me and led me to a hotel n I was directed to a room, I was told the other party will come too. When I opened the door I found that it was only the guy, I messaged my client immediately n he said he was stuck up in serious traffic that if they don’t make it till 6 i should leave. It was like 15 minutes to 6.
“The moment it was 6, I told the guy I was leaving. He stood n said I should hug him, it was wierd. I sha said I can’t. He said I should sit, that if you are in Rome you behave like a Roman, n in a strange place you have never been before,u obey command. He said he could start shouting I’m a thief and the guys downstairs would beat me n take me to police station or he could pour acid on me.
“Me I sha used sharp mouth to tell him that all that because of hug??Please he should let me go. Next thing, he said he knew I will be stubborn n he brought out a tiny bottle which he wrapped in a handkerchief. He said he knows what a drop would do to my face in 30 minutes. It was at that moment it dawned on me that it was a set up.
“I started crying and begging. Oga said all I had to do was obey him. I told him I would, he told me to enter toilet. I realized, I could die, I could be used, raped or whatever. I now remembered I was in a hotel & there will be guests in the rooms.
“I immediately kicked the acid off his hands and started screaming while picking my hand bag n opening the door. He was shocked and I opened the door wide. Other guests were rushing out of their rooms I didn’t even wait. I kept running even security couldn’t stop me The first bike I got like this took me home straight. God saved me ooo.
“I’m a regular babe who strives hard to pay my bills myself. At 22, I already have my studio while serving and I sell makeup kits n all. Plus my business is about 1 year 3 months.
“Please what is the plight of the regular Nigerian lady with no body guard or anything.”
