- A man in Bayelsa state who was once a company driver and later a bus driver in Lagos has shown a cab driver whose car lost control some act of kindness
- The cab driver had rammed into Paul Eris' house damaging his fence and also breaking his electricity pole
- Instead of making him pay up for the damages, Eris gave him N50,000 to fix his broken car
Rather than arrest and maybe prosecute a taxi driver who rammed into his fence, a kind-hearted Nigerian man from Bayelsa state, Paul Eris, displayed the humane part of him.
The cabman witnessed the kindness Eris after his car lost control and rammed into the fence of his house and also the electric pole meant to supply electricity to his building.
The kind man who was a former Niger Delta agitator fence was damaged but he decided to have mercy on the taxi driver by letting him go without fixing the damaged part of his house. He also gave him the sum of N50,000 to fix his damaged car and get back to work.
The man who was once a driver felt sympathy for the cabman as he noted that he couldn't have rammed into his fence or broke the pole supplying electricity to his house on purpose.
"My transformer fence was hit and electric pole 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 later ended up driving bus (Danfo), and I realized there are no mistakes in life, except beautiful accidents.
And if I was mistreated for one or two cases doesn’t mean I should manhandle another who is a victim of circumstance, I won’t do that."
