One year after, Ali Baba ‘mourns’ loss of bicycle
By Temitope Ojo
Ace comedian, Ali Baba is still mourning the loss of his Pinarello Dogma F10 bike, which a friend took for a ride to his estate gate and left carelessly, and was eventually stolen.
He took to his Instagram page, Friday morning to express his pain over the loss.
According to him, his friend left the bike carelessly because he didn’t know it was an expensive bike.
He blamed himself for not protecting the bike enough and not informing his friend that the bicycle was not ordinary.
“Let people know the value of the things you let them have. So that they don’t treat it anyhow.” He encouraged.
Here’s what he wrote: “IT’S now 1 year since I lost my #pinarello Dogma F10. Yes. I lost it. Because one of my guys, who knew no better, came to stay for some days, took it for a ride to the gate in my estate. Left it at the Main gate and went wherever was important for him. I wanted to take it for a spin and asked for the bike. No one could say where it was.
“Some days after, someone remembered that few days back, the guy who took it did not bring it back. He was accosted. He owned up. Went to the Main gate. And of course, it was not found.
“I was upset for 3 reasons.
“The price of the bike.
“The second reason was that there were other bicycles there, but because everyone is too lazy to pump them, they just grab the one that is available.
“The third and most important reason that got me livid was the fact that I did not protect the bike. In more ways than one, I failed to do the needful. I should have let them know that “this bicycle” is not ordinary. The value was more than it looked. I should have chained it. I should have warned everyone about it. I should have put it in the garage with my S Class. I should left an instruction that no bike goes out and doesn’t come back home. I should have made it clear that you must obtain permission before riding anyone of my bikes. But I didn’t.
“That is the point of all this post. Let people know the value of the things you let them have. So that they don’t treat it anyhow. People usually handle things better, when they know the value.
“NOT ALLLLLL Red wine is red wine. Some are winer than others. There is 400k red wine. There is 5k red wine. If you give a bottle of an exotic and aged red wine to someone who doesn’t know the value, he can exchange it for a 1k recharge card. Unknown to that person, the wine may just be over 500k.
