Onwuchekwa Martins, a Nigerian man took to Twitter on Monday, November 14, to tell the story of how he escaped death.

It happened in 2013 when Martins just passed out of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and got an instant job that made him so happy.

Martins, who served in Jigawa state, said he got the job in Abuja but felt it would be nice to share the good news with his parents.

He set out from Abuja to Calabar and arrived safely. There was, however, a serious mishap when he boarded a taxi.

Department of Public Transport, Calabar, caused the accident

Martins said after he boarded the taxi, the Department of Public Transport (DOPT) officials started chasing the cab man who ran into a ditch.

He said they were all pronounced dead. However, there was a prayer chain organised by his parents and God intervened through a mortuary attendant who insisted that he (Martins) was alive.

Martins was taken to the hospital and upon examination, it was found that he still had a pulse.

His words:

"That singular insistence, answered prayers (because God showed up) gave me a second chance at life as when I was examined I still had pulse."

Reactions from Twitter users

@MrLastBorn_ said:

"He never disappoints those who trust in him. God is still in the business of doing miracles."

@akam_sunny commented:

"Reading this I don't know if I should be laughing or crying cause I remember a comedy where a guy was pretending dead and they were about to embalm him then he woke up. God is good no."

Man brought to mortuary shows signs of life

Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that some mortuary attendants noticed that a man who was brought to them was still alive.

In a video that went viral on social media, the attendants drew back and wouldn't touch the fellow.

The video elicited knocks from social media users who berated the hospital that pronounced the fellow dead.
