“The fear still grips me” – Didi Ekanem recalls surviving car accident
Nollywood actress, Didi Ekanem cum Fashion Designer has recalled how she survived car accident in 2020, which was as a result of failed break.
The CEO of Odot Fashion Brand who is in Thanksgiving mood penned down how it happened via her verified Instagram page.
She revealed that although a man almost lost his life during the tragic incident, God’s mercy came through and the victim survived.
She shared some photos from the accident scene and wrote, ” This time last year, the devil tried it. I woke up on the morning of that day feeling very uneasy. As I was about to step out of the house, something told me to pray… then I started praying aggressively for one hour after which I got into my car and left. So on my way to the market, my brake failed completely and there was traffic on the road, and right in front of me was a school bus filled with children. I started screaming and suddenly , my car diverted and then hit the bridge pole like 3 times . For a second, I thought I will come out with either a broken head, smashed face, unconscious or even dead but Mercy said no, and brought me out of the car unhurt. “
“Yes there was casualty as the victim while trying to run unfortunately ran in front of the car and was hit to the pole . I was so scared that he’ll die but again, Mercy said no… and took that burden away from me . Sadly he was in the hospital for a few days.”
“Till now, I haven’t gone to the police station to retrieve my car cos of the trauma. Every time I pass that road to the market, the fear that grips me. But in all, I give God all the glory. The story could have been worse but the mercy of God prevailed mightily. If that man had died, I probably would have been in jail by now… and even after I come out would have lived with guilt for the rest of my life. Thank You Lord for loving me the way you do.”
