Saved from an accidental stray bullet!
I wish to express my profound gratitude for the precious gift of life, which was miraculously preserved in an unexpected turn of events. This incident took place during my tenure as a Marketing Personnel at NIIT Onitsha, immediately following my Youth Service. Our task that day was to install a substantial advertising banner directly in front of our office at Pacific Complex, Awka Road, Onitsha.
While overseeing the operation, one of my colleagues playfully remarked to the security guard that his firearm appeared to be inadequately maintained. In response, the security guard, in an attempt to demonstrate the gun’s operational condition, cocked and raised the firearm. Tragically, in that moment, the weapon discharged a round, with me standing directly in its path.
The subsequent events remain somewhat of a blur to me. I recall hearing the shattering of the windshield of a nearby Benz and being propelled to the right at an astonishing velocity. A sharp pain surged through my shoulder blade, yet I was spared from the potential consequences of this firearm discharge. It is undeniably a divine intervention that safeguarded my life on that fateful day. To that, I offer my heartfelt thanks to God.
