Akpene Hehemeku, a social media user has narrated a heart-wrenching experience that allegedly contributed to her young brother’s demise.
Completely demoralised by the death of her brother, she took to social media to recount their ordeal leading to his death.
Akpene noted that at the dawn of Tuesday, February 25, 2020, her mum went to the roadside to get a car to send her brother to the hospital.
''We managed to take my brother to the roadside so the driver can take it from there. On the way my brother could not walk again so he fell on the way and his legs got dirty with mud. Thank God my mum got a taxi and they came,'' she disclosed.
Hehemeku continued: ''My house is somehow far from the roadside so one have to go to the roadside to look for a taxi. That faithful Tuesday dawn my mum went to the roadside to get a car to send my bro to the hospital. We managed to take my brother to the roadside so the driver can take it from there. On the way my brother could not walk again so fell on the way and his legs got dirty with mud. Thank God my mum got a taxi and they come.
This taxi driver looked at my brother and said cos his legs got dirty with mud he can't put him in his car and this was about 4:30 am at dawn. We tot he was a joking and to our surprise he reversed and drove away without helping to serve his life.
He left him oooo that how some people can be wicked to another human being. Maybe he could have saved my brother's life ooooo cos Getting another taxi delayed everything. My bro is gone! Gone! Gone! My heart is heavy cos I know how I can go to just put smiles on people's faces but mine is just tears..... Where are we going in this country? Where is our conscience? One thing I know is God will see us through. Is still like a movie to me. My heart is bleeding.''
