Act of kindness by Lagos driver melts hearts on social media
Despite the growing rate of crimes and man’s evil to his fellow man, it turns out there are still people with kind hearts that genuinely care about the next person. A Twitter user, @DerinAdebayo, left many people in awe with a heart melting story.
He recounted how he was on his way to work when he saw a man seated and shivering on the popular 3rd Mainland Bridge. According to Adebayo, his driver not only offered the man biscuits, but also gave his jacket to the helpless man.
He wrote: “I was having a really sh*tty morning. Late for work. Raining. Couldn’t get a taxify on time. I finally get a cab. There’s an old man on 3MB shivering in the rain. Driver gives him biscuit. But after we drive a bit further, he asks me if he can go back and give the man a suit. I’m close to tears in the morning on a Monday. Random acts of kindness really get me in my feels.”

This tweet is very touching. But the Lagos I know wouldn’t have let me permit the driver to go back for fear of both of them conniving to scam/rob me.
