Composite online and offline retail chain, Yudala, reportedly made history yesterday with the first ever drone delivery in Nigeria.

The delivery was made in fulfillment of a Black Friday order – a NokiaLumia phone - placed by Yetunde Lawal, a staff of Access Bank Plc., who was shopping on the Yudala site for the first time.

According to a Nigeria CommunicationsWeek report, the drone making the delivery took off from the Yudala headquarters and made its way down to the Access Bank branch along the Gbagada-Oshodi expressway.

A yudala staff was available at the drop point to process the invoice and hand over the phone to an elated Yetunde who utilized the payment on delivery option.

“I am extremely delighted and indeed short of words to explain how I feel to be the first person to receive an item via drone delivery in Nigeria, all thanks to Yudala. This is an innovative concept in the evolution of e-commerce in the country which I am sure other competitors will want to copy. Yudala has met and exceeded my expectations and I can only encourage all my colleagues, friends and family to shop and shop Yudala. Black Friday is here and I am glad that the Yudala offer will run till Monday,” Lawal said.

Yudala entered the ecommerce space a little over four months ago with both online and offline stores , making it the first composite retail chain in Nigeria.
