“So I almost lost my life…I’m still in shock. So I was in a taxi headed to ikeja. We got to Osborne road I noticed the cab driver’s mouth was wide open and he was pointing at me. In my mind I was like ok he stammers.
I stutter as Well so no biggie. I was eating my salad and waiting for him to finish his sentence..next thing something foam like started coming out from his mouth. We were moving fast about 80km/h or so. I knew something was wrong. I started shouting Jesus. I’m not about to die now. Oga is epileptic. He hit the car in front of us. Our front tire busted. Finally our car stopped.
I had already thought I was dead. Alas the culvert wedged the car. The driver was dying..was flagging down cars to help the driver. No one stopped. Everyone drove past except a woman that parked behind us but was too scared to alight from her vehicle.
Thank God for the RRS stationed by deputy gov’s house. They helped resuscitate the driver. Imagine this happened on 3rd mainland bridge. The driver is fine. No one should ask me why an epileptic patient is driving. Ask @taxify.ng Medical check up is important pls. Ignore my typo if any..I’m still in shock “
