On Sunday, a car accident that claimed the life of a young boy occurred in Afaha Offiong, in Akwa Ibom State.

Upon seeing what had happened, the driver of the Sienna bus made an attempt to run away with his vehicle.

However, one of the witnesses at the scene of the accident, Pastor Ab Isong, went after him and was able to get police officers to take him into custody.

The man has now given a disheartening update about the incident. He stated that police officers, as well as the parents of the boy, had resorted to bargaining the amount that the driver had to pay as compensation for the death of the child.

Read Isong’s Facebook post about the incident below.

 

Oh, Life!

So the family who’s the child was knocked down yesterday came to the police station to negotiate and bargain.

They started from 5 million naira and landed at 300.000 thousand naira only!

The boy had been buried yesterday but today was sold!

If the parent had not sent him on errand I believe he would still be alive and perhaps become a governor or president someday.

So after everything the IPO brought his own wahala by demanding for 100k bail bond whereas it is boldly written in their office BAIL IS FREE!

I had to call Daniella Awele Eyitemi Ejueyitchie one of the best police officer Nigeria has.

She immediately changed the narrative and truly bail was free.

Witnesses who were at the scene confirmed the fault was from the little boy who ran into the road without caution.

The driver tried to dodge but was helpless.

The guy confessed to have had a dream a day before the accident happened. And the scenerio that played out was exactly what he saw in his dream.

Finally:

Parent do not send your minors on errand especially if they have to cross an express.

Never joke with your dream.

Life has no duplicate.

Note:

I had to blur his face for fear of stigmatization.
