A Nigerian Professor of English, Pius Adesanmi, who was involved in an accident along Oyo-Ogbomosho road on Wednesday, has narrated his ordeal.
Adesanmi lamented how no help came for him and other victims of the accident for almost two hours after the accident. The don said he was on his way to Lagos from Ilorin to board a flight to Dakar for a meeting.
Between Oyo and Ogbomosho, his vehicle – a Nissan- had a head-on collision with a car from Ibadan (a Toyota Privia). “Two hours after the accident, no help came. The evacuation culture was zero,” he said.
He explained that people just gathered at the scene of the accident, wondering and shouting. Others were screaming and cursing. No one attempted to help. Mr Adesanmi narrated how he passed out several times.
He said a taxi driver eventually “came to his senses”, about two hours after the accident, and took the victims to the hospital. He explained that they were taken to a general hospital in Oyo town where they spent another two hours before they were attended to.
