OP-ED: Man narrates encounter with a group of friends who poisoned their friend’s drink after he left to pee

Man narrates encounter with a group of friends who poisoned their friend’s drink after he left to pee – A young Nigerian man has narrated his encounter with a group of friends at a bar, who tried to poison their friend’s drink in his absence.

Fake friends; those who only drill holes under your boat to get it leaking; those who discredit your ambitions and those who pretend they love you, but behind their backs they know they are in to destroy your legacies.

“Fake friends are like shadows: always near you at your brightest moments, but nowhere to be seen at your darkest hour. True friends are like stars, you don’t always see them but they are always there.”

Narrating the incident, the man identified as Sammy warned people to be weary of people they call friends. According to him, the victim while in the company of his friends, left his drink to pee, and before he returned, his friends had already spiked his drink.

Sammy who was seated on another table close to the group of friends and saw everything happening, said when the friend who had gone to pee returned, he tried to stop him from taking the drink, but he took offence and ignored his warnings.

Read the full story as narrated on Instagram below,

“Went to a bar after the close of work to chill a bit before heading home (Thanks to Lagos Traffic). Sitting directly opposite me on a round table were a group of friends numbering about 6, drinking and gisting.

One of them stood up to go pee while he left his glass filled drink behind. A thought hit me and i had my eyes fixed at the table as if i was waiting for something to happen.

Lo and behold, one of them spiked his glass with a substance while the other four were looking out for he who went to pee. I was shocked and confused. What just happened ? I asked myself. The dude who went to pee came around and sat back down.

They continued their gist as if nothing had happened and they were all laughing. The dude who went to pee picked up his drink about to take a sip when i quickly stood up, ran towards the table and smacked the drink right off his hand.

He was confused and wondering what just happened. I tried to tell him not to drink from that glass, he yelled at me, pushed me on my chest and asked if i was mad. The others joined him in assaulting me for my act.

While i tried to explain to him what had happened, he wouldn’t even hear me out. He was all over the place screaming and banging on the table threatning to deal with me while his friends were doing same.

The bar manager came around and pleaded with me to step out, which i did. I paid for my drinks and left. But before i took my leave, i told the bar manager what i saw and asked him to save the dude’s life from his friends. We have to be careful out there with those we call our friends and please don’t walk away from your drink. Its dangerous!!!”
