Officer Celestina Nwankwo @cop_teena
DPO Ogudu Police Station is an angel/super hero.
On the 19th of September 2019 a young man named Ajabor Friday was shot by thieves and left for dead at Ogudu.
As usual hospitals refused to take him in until officer Celestina intervened and had to threaten fire and brimstone before the young man was taken into a hospital.
Of course they said the usual “we can not treat him without payment”. To cut the long story short, officer Celestina has spent over N400,000 (four hundred thousand naira) that she did not have (she even had to borrow) to see young Friday through a major operation and he is now out of the ICU and stabilised.
I asked her why she did it and she said when he looked up at her while bleeding, held her hand and said “mama dont leave me, I do not want to die” she knew there was no way she would know peace if she did not try her best.
She did not want me to do this, but I said I had to.
I celebrate you officer Celestina Nwankwo.
God bless and replenish you.
