The crazy thoughts in my head: ALMOST SHOT IN THE FACE!

The crazy thoughts in my head

The crazy things in my head

Saturday, January 06, 2007


I was driving back home with a girlfriend of mine about 2 hrs ago. I live in the lekki area and i was on ozumba mbadiwe in victoria island (8.20pm) just gisting and driving when i noticed a car facing oncoming traffic in full speed and it rammed into the car in front of me. So that instantly caused a standstill. Within seconds, people behind me started to reverse, i was trying to reverse as well when i saw them.
They were like 5 or 6 guys with guns running towards the cars. Two of them ran to my car and tried to break my car window, i quickly wound down and he yelled " give me your bag, your money, your phone" (Note that he was saying all this with his gun to my face!) I was like ok, ok, i opened my glove compartment and tried to get my old cellphone that i kept there in case of situations like this but because i was shaking so much, i couldnt find it! Meanwhile, my friend was screaming and begging at the same time.
The guy brought the gun a few inches from my face and was yelling "i will shoot!, give me the money, your bag,phone" With my left hand i was pushing the gun away from my face several times while my right hand was searching for nothing in particular! He then put his hand through my window and opened my door. I think he was going to drag me out of the car &Then we heard sirens, so he panicked and looked back, as he looked back, my friend yelled "Go!" I stepped on the gas and with my door flying open, i drove faster than a bat out of hell! I was expecting them to shoot my tires, shoot me through the glass, i was bracing myself for the pain but Glory be to God. They didnt shoot, they didnt do anything. I didnt even look back, i was shaking, crying, i couldnt believe it.
I looked down the barrel of a GUN, I pushed a gun away from my face!!! what if they shot me? What if they got into the car & expected me to drive somewhere they could rape & torture me? What if? what if? If i got shot, would i even give a f*ck about a blog???

I havent stopped Thanking God fro sparing my life, i havent stopped thinking about it, i cant even tell my parents, why? cos they will continue to refer to it anytime i want to go out.

Sorry i didnt really read through this, im still very shaken up!

Sorry to hear that girl.
Rule of thumb. Never Ever argue with a guy who's pointing a Gun at you.

Always keep your Windows wound up. But if he point a gun, wind down and calmly give him everything.

Don't stop at Road Blocks on Lekki Express after 9 p.m.I live there so i know what i'm on about. Drive as fast as you can and if possible clear every obstacle on the road.Living thing or not.

Fully insure your Car. It gives you some inner peace and Calmness.Don't go for the 3rd insurance party B.S

Lastly, Never Ever argue with a Man with a Gun.

Good Lord!!! Thank God u got out of that encouter unscathed. I wouldnt wish having a gun pointed at ur head on my worst enemy. God loves you dear - this is an experience just be wary of the car next to you cos they could contain those uncouth animals who think working hard for a living is for idiots and dummies.
