There have been several negative reports from people lamenting the poor state of courier services in the country. Sometimes, customers complain that their packages have been tampered with among other things.
A Nigerian model identified on Instagram as @smallieee_, recently took to her page to narrate her shocking experience with a courier service. The model explained in her post that she got an iPhone from the UK and decided to transport the phone to Nigeria through the use of DHL. According to her, after she had initially paid the sum of N18,000, she received a letter from the company explaining that she had to pay some other dues, amounting to ₦21,632, making the total money she paid for the delivery to be about N40,000. However, she got the shock of her life when her package finally arrived and she found a pack of pens inside, instead of the phone she was expecting.
She wrote: “Everything about this country is messed up.
