At about 1.46pm on Monday 21st April , 2014, while driving in my car in company of my wife’s friend to a meeting suddenly I heard a hit behind on my brand new car FORD ESCAPE 2013/2014 Edition.
Lo and behold it was one young man by name Efiom E Okokon who claims he works with NNPC Hqtrs Abuja driving in his Toyota Camry with a lady in the car with Car Reg No KADUNA AG 909 KJM.
He first admitted to fix my car by calling his Panel Beater but my own car is a Brand New SUV which is being handled by COSCHARIS MOTORS.
I called Coscharis Motors but was asked to bring the car to their office on Tuesday 22nd April, 2014.
I then asked the young man to write an undertaken admitting in principle to be liable and responsible but amazingly, he refused. I became uncomfortable with his disposition and he noticed. Then as God would work in my Favour, he willingly gave me his staff ID Card.
I got hold if the card while we both gentlemanly, agreed for him to fix the car. We drove out of the scene of the auto-crash.
Unknown to me as we’re driving towards AYA junction in Asokoro, he had invited two of his friends or brothers to join him by dealing with me.
On getting to AYA junction, I stopped for us to dialogue agreed on how to settle amicably but here he demanded for his ID Card which I did not oblige him.
I instead gave him a condition to write and sign an undertaken so I could return his ID Card to him. There he was out for trouble.
The meeting I was supposed to have at Kubwa was scheduled for 2pm. Therefore, I pleaded with him to follow me to the meeting because some dignitaries were waiting for.
I got to the meeting venue. The young man Efiom would not alight from his car but his two military personnel did from his car and accosted me. I asked them to give me a minute to address those waiting for me.
I was moving and suddenly on the staircase to the meeting, they dragged me downwards the staircase, tore my new lace bought by my wife for the Easter celebration and gave me thorough beaten.
At this juncture, I didn’t know they were military personnel. Immediately, my wife’s friend in my car ran to invite Policemen nearby to rescue my life and before long people gathered and then Policemen came.
It took Police several couple of minutes to calm them down. They were bragging, insulting, cursing and molesting my personality for doing nothing.
They wouldn’t obey the Police to be taken to the Station whereas I quickly drove in my car with a Police Inspector to lay complaint.
I am being threatened to be dealt with in a way I do not know by these young guys. Please take note should in case anything happens to me now or later.
The two young military personnel one by name flight officer FEMI ADEMULEGUN and the other Lieutenant Efiom or so called other military colleagues one of them is Lieutenant SIMPA of the Nigerian Army.
Although, SIMPA first came to plead and at the same time harassing me telling me there is nothing I could do and I should go anywhere I wanted to.
Enough is enough. They might have been assaulting and molesting innocent Nigerians and if these guys are not taught the lesson of their life, they may continue and get worse .
Nigerians must deliver Nigerians!!!
