I give all the glory to God for saving my life from stray bullet. On the 27th of January precisely, I went to Ikotun market to get some things. I alighted from the bus and went inside the market to get the things I needed. As I was shopping, I heard a gun-shot and within the twinkle of an eye, there was chaos; everybody was running helter-skelter. There was pandemonium inside the market, I ran and hid under a table (it was the first thing that I saw) as instincts had taken over at this point. I hid there until I saw people thronging out of the market; I quickly joined them in the search for better safety.

On the 27th of January precisely, I went to Ikotun market to get some things. I alighted from the bus and went inside the market to get the things I needed. As I was shopping, I heard a gun-shot and within the twinkle of an eye, there was chaos; everybody was running helter-skelter. There was pandemonium inside the market, I ran and hid under a table (it was the first thing that I saw) as instincts had taken over at this point. I hid there until I saw people thronging out of the market; I quickly joined them in the search for better safety. I needed to cross to the other side of the road; another woman, visibly shaken, disheveled, was standing next to me. As we made ready to cross the road, I heard a policeman shouting and out of fear, I quickly lowered myself. Then therewas a volley of gunshots and suddenly, I heard a piercing scream from the woman who was standing beside me; a heavy thud and then silence. I saw her sprawled lifeless right in the middle of the road. She had been hit. I was overwhelmed. It could have been me lying down there! I appreciate God becauseI just cannot fathom how I escaped the bullet. If not for God, where would I have been! I bless the name of my God, He is ever truthful to His word, He promised “I will watch over you” and He did not fail me.I am alive today, giving God all the glory and adoration.
