What's The Most Traumatic And Scariest Event You Have Ever Witnessed?

Mine was watching a child fall from the 3rd floor of a building. I was talking with some friends while the boy was in the 3rd floor of his parents playing then somehow, he fell off from such a huge distance. I watched in disbelief as people quickly rushed to the scene and had the child taken to the hospital immediately. Luckily the child survived.

Second was a beggar who lived on my street. He was starving and had no option but to beg for help. Each day going to work, I gave him what I could afford. Traveled for some weeks and I saw him down to just a bag of bones. Next day he was already dead. For about a week his body was still there and no one cared.

one of my scariest was when I almost had a head on collision with a tanker while traveling. Within a fraction of a second of colliding we somehow veered to the other side of the road. Worst still I was at the drivers seat where the damage would have been worse. Honestly I was seconds away from death..

Last on my most traumatic was witnessing a murder scene. I don’t even want to talk about it..

Scariest for me would be when I was in secondary school…JSS 2 or so…wanted to cross the Iwo road-Ojoo axis. I and two other girls playfully holding hands…we were not going or relating but we wanted to cross at the same time. I could still recall how I took the step and a voice just told me to go back…the two girls crossing went for the run across the road one was hit by a truck and her brain spilled out in an instant, right in front of me!

I could have been dead too!

Mine was accident @ ikeja before the pedestrian bridge was built.
A lady tried to cross but got hit by a danfo bus. She died instantly. Brain was on the floor. Windscreen shattered. The driver tried to make a run for it. That was his folly. He was chased by several commuters. Beaten stripped naked. Bus was burnt. I had nightmare for days

Mine was during labour, one woman who was also in labour was the one encouraging me, she was having her third child or so, she went into the delivery room but didn’t make it, she had a pre existing medical condition (hospital had no maternal casualty in a year plus)….her mother’s wail down the hall still sends shivers down my spine whenever I remember… no one deserves to loose a child… I was so scared even with the pain and everything…. it was the scariest and most traumatic moment in my adult life… My daughter was sick at birth, I… Read more »

When the keke I boarded two years ago took a tumble and just kept on dragging on the floor without end…in the middle of the express way. I heard someone screaming manaically, and it was when the keke finally halted after what seemed like forever that I realised I was the person screaming.

That day, I emerged from the wreckage bruised, bloodied and with a sobering realisation that life is very very fragile. It is hanging on a thin thread and can snap in less than a second.

1. Lagos Bomb blast 2002

2. It was during my internship at a construction company. A very heavy iron fell on a worker and died immediately. It was a gory scene.

One day a man fell into a septic tank. Right up to the neck. He tried to get out desperately but he couldn’t. Then after sometime he started screaming, “Fire, fire, fire!” Neighbors heard the fire screams, called the fire brigade. The firemen came and looked everywhere, no fire. Then they found him in the septic tank, pulled him out and then they asked why were you screaming fire?’ Then he said, “If I said ‘Shit, shit,’ would you have come?!” So just working hard will not do. You must do the right thing otherwise it doesn’t work. Action should… Read more »

Mine was when I was about 12 or 13 years old. My mum was a food vendor at a bus stop in Lagos at that time. I witnessed an accident from beginning to the end as I saw trailer that had no brakes crushed pedestrians waiting for buses at the bus stop on that fateful Tuesday morning. There was a TATA bus in front that eventually stopped the trailer but a fully loaded 18 seater bus was compressed between the bus and the trailer. I saw scores of lifeless dismembered human bodies that day. The papers later reported 12 deaths… Read more »

Exactly a month today (a day after ileya)I went to a salon to Plat my hair, later a customer came and the hair dresser begged me to fix the customer hair and I agreed, not quite the hair dresser fell and we gave her milk but she didn’t respond so we took her to hospital and we were told that she is late, I was shocked what came to my mind was that is this how people die, fell and died, I could not sleep in my room that day

The scariest so far was when they were doing an Islamic exorcism on one woman in my estate. I went to see a very close frnd of mine, a Muslim. Stays in same estate as mine, but blocks away. Getting there, his sis told me him and his mum went to a neighbors house(I also know the neighbor) that the woman has been acting strange (possessed)for weeks so his mum went there to pray for her. I got there, peeped thru the window. The said woman was tied. I saw like four imams there, judging from d angle I was… Read more »

A girl hawking children stories book fell into a gutter ( those kinda gutters with very thick black sand and stinky liquid ). She must have been in there for quite some time cos she didn’t survive it. By the time she was brought out ,her entire body was already covered with that sand. Luckily, there was a person who sells water opposite where the incident had occurred, so it was easier to get her body washed. Several buckets of water was poured on her. She started screaming and laughing n then suddenly, she tore her clothes and ran off.… Read more »

Mine was the day a fellow corper called me over to his room to kill me. Funny thing was I had no issue or quarrel with the guy prior to the fateful day. He stabbed me thrice in my chest region, around where my heart is located, but the knife didn’t penetrate (No be juju, Na God work). How Baba God do am, I no know, but I Thank Him for coming thru for me. Pushed him off, bolted for the door, dude grabbed me by the neck, squeezing my wind pipe and oesophagus shut (I was about giving up… Read more »

Last year June, my friend was to pick me up at Sagamu junction along Lagos-Ibadan express. I left Ibadan in the afternoon, but by the time i got to Sagamu exchange junction, it was dark. I was the only one that got down from the bus at the junction. I turned around to pee, and as i was zipping up my jeans afterwards, I saw a machete at my neck and a voice said, “If you make any move, I will slice your neck.” I quickly raised my hands, and the other robbers dipped their hands in my pocket; took… Read more »

A friend and i were standing at a junction at auchi, we saw 2 known cults guys ride past us on a bike. Their cult was having issues with another cult and they had been sent to spy on the others who were gathered at a spot down the road. Unfortunately for them, the bike man who carried them was a member of the rival cult and simply rode them right into the midst of their enemies. Long story short, one had a wrist chopped off and a gaping hole in his forehead from a gun shot, the other had… Read more »

Got detained at state CID Benin, shipped there from Auchi Poly, 25 of us. Spent 11 days there and was lucky enough to be the first to get out. Those 11 days seemed like a year. Most mornings, very early, the CID guys would call out people, take them right behind the cell and ask them if there was anything they could get for them as their last wish, some asked for cigarettes, some nothing, either way their heads got blown off. I can’t count the number of guys i met in that hell hole who didn’t make it out… Read more »
