While narrating the ordeal, the Nigerian Footballer revealed the accident was the second he had this year.
“That was two days ago I was coming back from Enugu where I went to bury my Uncle on the 16th,” he said about the car wreckage.
“At about 3pm along Ozoro, I was driving at about 110 [km/h].
“The road was a freeway, but then I noticed a pothole and started to pump the brakes to avoid running into it. But as I was trying to avoid running into a ditch in the middle of the road, then I lost control of the car and the next thing I knew, the car flipped as we were thrown off the road into a pillar.
“I had my 65 year-old mum and younger brother with me in the car; we came through without a scratch. When I went back to see the wreckage, I burst into tears because I knew I was lucky to be alive.”
“The first incident happened on the 16th of this month, I was driving to my Community with two relatives when a trailer, crashed into us from behind. The driver said the truck had no brakes and he had lost control at the time.”
