In the last 1 hour, I have cried more than I have in ages.
My baby brother and I were/are on our way to Redemption Camp for the Holy Ghost Service when we encountered a bit of traffic on the 3rd Mainland Bridge.
I thought it strange considering the time but hey…
We then happened upon a man who we thought was dead in the middle of the road but as our car drove by, I noticed he was still breathing. We stopped immediately. Another vehicle stopped too.
There was no question about lifting the guy because we would have ended up in prison and charged with hit and run.
My brother trekked on Third Mainland Bridge to try to find an ambulance while myself and the other guy that stopped called the contact numbers of the police.
At this time, I was directing the traffic on 3rd Mainland Bridge away from the body of the guy in the middle of the road till he was moved to the pavement.
4 Military men passed on “Okadas” and said “Eeeyah” and moved on.
The police passed by with sirens and shook their heads. They didn’t stop.
A LASTMA official on a bike stopped. He didn’t have a vehicle so he called his bosses who told him “they” were not coming.
I was stunned.
Then came a policeman with the new vehicles given by Ambode and he called his bosses who instructed him not to carry the guy in the “new” car. It wasn’t to be stained with blood.
I broke down in tears at this point.
The reality was that the new police car was worth more than the Nigerian life.
This was my Nigeria. This was my Lagos.
We eventually stopped the ambulance of the Gbagada General Hospital and the driver agreed to carry the man, ONLY if the police escorted him.
So I understand the following
1. I cannot help a citizen who is injured because I will end up in prison first while they determine that I am not responsible.
2. The Uniform is a joke in Nigeria. It has no respect for the Nigerian life if you do not have money.
3. The new vehicles are better than the Nigerian life. Don’t have an accident near one.
4. I need to relocate to New Zealand.
This is so sad. I hope this man survives…….
