A Nigerian lady identified as Seunfunmi Stephen has taken to social media to share the heartbreaking story of how she lost her beloved husband.
Stephen in a lengthy post which was shared on her Instagram page said the sad event happened on a Friday. She narrated how she had gotten upset because he did not arrive home on time as they had earlier discussed.
However, things started taking a different shape after a neighbour came with the news that her husband was at a hospital around Ajah and her attention was needed.
Stephen said she immediately called her man’s phone but it was picked up by someone else who stressed the importance of her presence at the hospital.
On getting to the hospital, Stephen said she was met with a horrible sight. Her husband had a bandage on his head and there was bleeding from his head and nose.
"My husband, my best friend was outside the hospital gate, inside a keke napep with a drip on him and a bandage on his head, bleeding from his head and nose, I screamed "babe is this you" my son started crying, my daughter kept saying 'mommy I want to meet daddy'," her post read in part.
Stephen said when she asked why no one was helping her husband get medical attention, she was told that arrangements were being made to move him and some other people to a hospital in Marina.
She recounted how she was directed to a police officer present at the scene so that he could hasten the process of getting her husband the needed medical attention.
According to her, that was when she found out that her husband was involved in a crossfire between police officers and armed robbers.
