Velocity Darlington, the US-dependent Nigerian rapper, has taken to social media to lament in excess of the alleged looting of his car or truck by still-to-be-discovered individuals following it landed at Lagos port from the United States.
In a video shared on his Instagram site, the musician said his car arrived in the country on July 20 soon prior to this year’s Sallah celebration.
Darlington also claimed he compensated the sum of N550,000 to transportation the vehicle from his base in the US to Nigeria.
The singer included that when he at some point acquired the automobile, all the items kept inside of the motor vehicle had been looted whilst various components of the car were also defaced.
In accordance to him, officers at the port allegedly utilised a forklift to thrust his motor vehicle from the ship after it failed to begin.
He decried the failure of regulatory businesses at the port, adding that quite a few products he experienced toiled to gather for decades ended up stolen in the system.
“Look at what they did to my car. This is not the vehicle that I left in the US. Nigeria is full of loathe. All this was not there when I dropped this vehicle off. 5 hundred fifty thousand naira, I’m not wealthy but in the center-class,” he stated.
“Look at what they did to my auto just after paying out $1200. How significantly does a gentleman have to pay back for his homes to be taken treatment of? So my automobile did not get started and you determined to use a forklift to push my automobile, actually? Soon after all that fees.
“Look at my motor vehicle trunk, it’s vacant, they took all the things together with all my resources worth more than $500. Two gasoline pumps, speaker, and many others.
“My vehicle landed on July 20 and the next day was Sallah. Just two days holiday and they did this to me. I have all kinds of private equipment in the car…speaker, amplifier, inverter.
“It’s so hard to make it in Nigeria. They took all the things from the inside and outdoors. The agent that I contracted was a worthless 1, I’ll by no means retain the services of him once more.
“After having to pay N550,000 this gentleman came back again to check with me for a further N5,000. I don’t know what they informed you men but I’m not abundant. This can not come about in the US right after paying out $1,200.
“Nigerian Customs Support (NCS) and ship offloaders don’t have a battery to cost someone’s motor vehicle even following I compensated N550,000. When a car is parked for a thirty day period or in addition, there’s a likelihood it’ll not get started so my mine is not the initially.”
He went on to curse individuals responsible for the looting of his vehicle, expressing they will “suffer until death”.
“You that stole my yrs of accumulation will hardly ever make in lifetime. As you transfer about with my looted items, you’ll be knocked down by a car or truck. These types of a human being will manage till his past days on earth. You will undergo till loss of life,” he added.
