Nipost In Trouble Over Missing Diamond Ring




An undergraduate student of the University of Lagos, Olayemi Victoria, has accused the Nigeria Postal Service of taking her engagement diamond ring sent by her fiancé from the United States of America.

Victoria, who is a final year student of the Department of Botany, said she also discovered that a BlackBerry Z10, valued $500, which came with the package, had been stolen.

She claimed that when she opened the pack, she only found a PlayStation, chocolate bar and a magazine.

She said, “My fiancé who lives in the USA, sent me a package consisting of a diamond ring, BlackBerry Z10, PS, chocolate bar and magazine.

“He could have used DHL, but I told him not to worry that I would get it through NIPOST because it was not my first time of using the service. He sent it in March, this year.


“I went to the UNILAG post office last week Monday when I was told the package had finally arrived. But on getting there, I discovered the package had been tampered with and the diamond ring and BlackBerry Z10 were not there.”

She said the manager of the UNILAG office told her the package was received that way, and nothing could be done about it.

Victoria alerted the institution’s security men to the incident in the hope of getting her ring and BlackBerry back.

This, however, did not work.

It was learnt that an official of the post office threatened to beat her up after she became more insistent on recovering the missing items.


Victoria grew increasingly frustrated and reported the matter at the Sabo Police Station.

The policemen at the station took her statement and demanded N5, 000 before going with her to investigate the case.

Victoria’s fiance, Gbolahan Ijimayowa, who is based in Dallas, USA, said he had instructed his fiancée to go to the police station after speaking with the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba.

Ijimayowa expressed disappointment at the way the police handled the matter, alleging that the package was tampered with at the UNILAG post office.
