It’s all-consuming despondency. You can see it in his expressions. Like, this is his last hope, his only means of survival. It breaks the heart to watch his hopelessness.
The accident happened on Akin Adesola street, Victoria Island. A Slot executive, female, was driving from the opposite lane, she missed the traffic light (maybe ignored it) as it turned red. The Baba, taxi driver, was driving jolly through the green light, believing it was his right of way.
Unfortunately, one second can change everything.
The crowd blames the woman. But it is Baba’s sorrow that really gets to us. He is so heartbroken.
“Why should this happen?” he wept.
In Nigeria, it is unsure how the authorities handle accidents. Motorists are left to pick the broken pieces of their cars and angst off the ground and move on.
Here’s hoping Baba finds peace, regardless.
