The man, a renowned media practitioner in Uyo, by name Imo Udoima shared his ordeal and onward discovery on his Facebook timeline.
“I use to buy 10 liters of fuel extra when going home incase I need it for the Car,home Generator or the one at the shop”, he began his narrative.
“Each time I need it,I will meet an empty Jerry can…This has been repeating itself till I decided to put a stop to it during the last fuel crisis in the State.”
To set his trap and identify the thief, he said;
“I took a 4 litre Jerry can, bought black market at N250 per liter,bought a sachet of Salt for N100 totalling N1,100…I mixed the salt inside the fuel and as usual kept it for the owner.”
“That night,I took 3 bottles of Tiger nut and slept like a child ..In the morning,The fuel was gone and I smiled.”
“Few hours later, Someone’s car engine knocked and they have been battling to repair it for more than a month…Today,The car is for sale and just for N120,000k. Ladies and Gentlemen, Where did I go wrong?”
