Nollywood actress Adunni Ade narrowly escaped death through an accident early this morning.
The actress who left Ilorin by 4am for Lagos today in a post on Instagram shared her experience in what would have been a hit and run. While driving to Lagos, at Ogbomosho, on a narrow road a trailer drove past her on high speed and full headlight, she revealed.
Here is what the actress said:
“One of the scariest moments of my life.
I started my journey back to Lagos from Ilorin at 4:00am. An hour into the journey, I arrived at Ogbomosho on a narrow road. All of a sudden, a trailer coming on high speed with full headlight swarved towards me.
My heart skipped several beats! I thought that’s it! Trying to avoid getting hit, I drove off the small road and boom! My tyre was gone. It took me a while to get myself together, came out to check the damage. It was dark, no streetlights. I was scared! My mind went blank. I thought of the worst”.
“I summoned enough courage to get out of my car for the 2nd time to ask travelers for assistance. None stopped! Some slowed down but were too scared to stop as it was still dark. Finally! A trailer stopped and reluctantly decided to help. It would take 3 hours to take the tyre off. Eventually, it was removed.
“Simple things can be avoided. There is an ongoing (well it has been spotted for years) road construction that can be completed. When simple contracts are awarded, please let’s get them done.
Stop using Government funds to fund your lifestyles. How can a Great one of the Richest countries in Africa not have good roads, or simple amenities like Streetlights? All these money y’all eating cannot be taken to your grave when you’re no more”.
