While sharing images of the doll, he revealed that Custom charged him Ghc816 to clear the item.

Social media reacts
"If you insure the package they can’t touch it because you should know all those cargo are thieves in Nigeria they will even sign your package that you have collected and you never go their office to collect any package."
"Even if na this baby doll you send go Nigeria as far as u didnt give it to your friend who is going home.. The reciever will still find puppy doll inside instead of the baby doll..."
"It's normal, my cousin sent 4 iPhone to my sister, after huge custom clearance, it turn out to be 4 useless phones. All these exchange took place in Nigeria via our so called custom pple."
"It’s not supposed to be funny. MacBook pro is around $1099 or so. And he still paid 55k. W*tf is the Baby Doll doing in the pack?"
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that Ghanaian entrepreneur and innovator, Godwin Agyapong, has developed a high-quality delivery and pickup system called LocQar, a smart locker that holds packages for both the sender and receiver.
LocQar is a smart and efficient system that temporarily holds packages for a certain amount of time whether bought online, shops, sent from a friend or client. The recipient of the package receives a pin code to pick the item whenever they are ready.
