    I was traveling from Makurdi to Gboko, the vehicle left around 8 p.m. December 2019.
    I hate night journeys but sometimes situations warrant such.
    I called my cousin Jack who lives there to inform him about my journey.

    Just after 20 kilometers in the journey, a Toyota Corolla which is popularly known by the locals as “Duck Nyash” overtook our vehicle at great speed that made us screen out of awkward surprise.
    The vehicle’s potency for speeding makes it a semi-plane.
    That’s why some people refer to it as “Gboko by air.”

    Just after 5 minutes or so of the overtaking skit, we heard a crashing sound in front of us.
    It was the Duck Nyash that collided with a pickup truck that left its lane in order to miss a huge pothole.
    They collided head-on 😢

    I waited for someone to plead with our driver to stop so we can help the accident victims, no one did.
    They were only expressing their disdain about the Duck Nyash’s speed-grandeur.

    I finally asked the driver to kindly halt so we can assist the accident victims.
    The man resisted for a while but could not stand my incessant pleas.

    At the scene, I saw something quite strange and miraculous, that I can’t explain up till today.

    All the doors of the Toyota vehicle were jammed due to the impact of the accident, but the lady who was supposedly sitting in the passenger’s seat 💺 was outside while her child, who was less than a year, was on the floor of the car.
    She was devastated and calling on someone to save her child.
    I was moved by the mother’s cry and swung into action.
    The mother started crying uncontrollably when she saw her lifeless child.
    The boy had a deep cut on his head and blood was oozing out like spring water.

    I removed my vest and wrapped it round the boy’s head. And immediately, the boy coughed and a thick saliva came out of his mouth.
    I implored the lady, “madam stop crying your child is alive.”

    Just like a hen which has hatched recently, she flew and seized her son with so much joy and continued praying for him. She was also asking God to forgive all her sins and save her son.

    When I was done with the boy, I moved to other injured victims and conveyed them to a waiting bus 🚌.
    For the second time my heart skipped, when one of the accident victims asked me “my brother, do I still have legs?”🦵 🦵
    I replied, yes you have legs, and you will be alright soon.
    If I can remember vividly, he had multiple fractures.

    I kept on waking the other person to stay awake, I think he was the most hit, I instructed the other persons to engage him in a conversation and should not allow him to sleep off. He looked really terrible.

    I felt like accompanying them to the nearest hospital 🏥 to donate blood for those who needed it but my fiancèe’s family was waiting for me the next day.
    Up till today, I feel some little guilt for not following them to the hospital.

    Back in our vehicle, 🚖 the guy sitting next to me was repeatedly shrouding his shoulders and finally asked me, bros, how do you do it?

    Do what? I asked.
    How do you manage to face blood conveniently?
    He continued that the site of blood irritates him.

    I kept quiet, I don’t know how to coach a 6-foot giant on how to face the blood of accident victims.

    It happened that my cousin waited for me throughout the night, because of our delay at the accident scene.
    He was surprised to see me drenched in blood like an emergency nurse.

    That bro who asked you how you managed to stand or face blood was right because not that they are not moved to help but they can’t stand or face the sight of blood,
