Rendering help in Nigeria is the hardest thing to do because of the fear of law enforcement agencies but Chioma Nwabueze risked her freedom to save the life of a dying man.
A Boko Haram victim, who fled from Adamawa to Lagos, Chioma’s mother had always fed him until the day he was rushed to their house that he was dying of ruptured appendicitis.
How Chioma’s family rescued him despite police’s threat is commendable.
I came back from work and met this guy in my house.. According to my family, they always see him around n my (mum) mama Africa as I call her, usually give him food anytime she sees him resting at the front of our compound. To cut the story short, mum was only trying to do what the Bible asked us to do.
Unfortunately, this guy from Adamawa state, who is a victim of the Boko Haram tragedy, lost his parents and family in Adamawa n moved to Lagos.
On the 9th of December 2017, he was brought to our home by someone who said when he was dying of pains, he asked him who he has in this Lagos that can help him and he said my mum.
Coming back to meet this stranger I haven’t even met n saw his condition; I knew it was beyond just care as a nurse. We rushed him to hospital and doctor diagnosed RUPTURED APPENDICITIS…
I started asking myself, Chioma who sent u ooo.. Everyone I told said y can’t I throw him away to die? I was heart broken.
The load was on me n my family. We went to police station, they wanted to detain my dad. They were like y will he help someone he doesn’t know? It was hell for US.. We tried to get someone from his state to stand in for the surgery, no way…
Anyway I decided to take the risk. N I stood in. The surgery was successful. Am sharing this because anyone could have been in this guy shoe… I could have been in his shoe. Today is the happiest day of my life. God saved me from troubles for rendering help.. So Pls celebrate with me n my family…. It wasn’t easy but it was worth it.!!!!!
