A man identified as Ibi Kontein on Twitter shared a moving story of a widowed female danfo driver who was being harassed by other male drivers.

According to the lady, the men in the park failed to help the driver from filling her bus with passengers. Rather, they kept telling her to go home and 'cook for her husband'.

Ibi Kontein who did not like the subtle insult doled out at the driver decided to be her personal bus conductor. She helped the lady fill up the bus and they started moving.

As they moved, Ibi Kontein came to find out that the driver whose name is Ijeoma lost her husband and was left with four boys to take care of.

Following his death, Ijeoma used part of his burial money to see herself through a driving school. Then, she picked up her hubby's occupation and became a bus driver.
