Former leader of the Niger Delta militant, Paul Eris, popularly known as General “Ogunboss” has hit hard the internet this time, after giving 50, 000 naira worth of cash to an old taxi driver who rammed into his fence.
NAIJA LIVE TV gathered that the foremost ex-millitant leader made this disclosure at the earliest hours of today on his Facebook page where he wrote:
“Let him go, I thank God the man is strong and alive, I will repair my fence myself.
If I can’t do this little and tender sacrifice for an accident victim, simply because he hit my fence, then God won’t have reason for placing my condition better than the man.
There is a particular kind of suffering richer vessels should experience, for those with less of the world’s goods, that is the first considered step to show one another that your wealth does not make you bigger than how you should behave.
My transformer fence was hit and an electric pole was brought down this morning. I don’t know where the taxi driver was rushing to, but my Joy is that the driver is strong and alive, I will never give a struggling man the satisfaction of wishing him to suffer for an act that can happen to everyone.
I was a driver with Binta High Schools (Wale Adenuga) in Lagos some years back, and I latter ended up driving a commercial bus (Danfo), and I realized there is no mistakes in life, except beautiful accidents.
And if I was mistreated for one or two cases, that doesn’t mean I should manhandle another man who is a victim of circumstance. I won’t do that.
I am sorry and I apologize for not being able to raise enough money for the man to repair his taxi. Times are hard but even at that, I have given him N50,000
to support himself.
I have to forgive myself for not doing enough to help this struggling man, may God forgive me for not been too buoyant to try.”
