A young lady in Ghana has raised an alarm on Twitter after sharing a harrowing experience she had on the N1 road in Accra that nearly ended badly for her.
On her Twitter handle, @bewtifulnaa, the lady indicated that two men who were dressed as mechanics, drove close to her, and tried to stop her by shouting that her oil was leaking.
However, Naa said the men seemed a bit forceful in their quest to get her to stop, which gave her the first suspicion that they had an ulterior motive.
See the post below:
According to Naa, she got more suspicious after the men parked at the Dzorwulu bus stop and continued signaling her to stop, as a car cannot be fixed at a bus stop but a mechanic shop instead.
In addition, the smart young lady said she checked the trail behind her to see if she could find any oil trace but nothing was there, and this buttressed her conviction that the men were on a ploy.
Later, a genuine mechanic that Naa visited mentioned that the plot was a usual act by armed robbers and kidnappers.
They usually do this and might ask you to go the “their shop”around the corner. One may sit with you or drive your car to ensure “safety of the faulty car” then rob you at gun/knife point. They are still on the road with a small picanto-like car (grey in colour). They are hunting.
