Sharing the video, the user who identified as @gabs_gab attached a caption that read “Na so we for take kpai.”


According to the user, her and her friends had opted to use the elevator but were surprised when it experienced some technical issues while they were inside.

The light in the elevator went off, causing fear to grip the ladies and they shouted ‘Jesus’ and started screaming for help while scampering for safety.
