Also my fwnd, Peace Udoh who I signalled to get me a copy of the programme, also Queen Ekong who I saw there too were confirmed dead. Finally, am here to say ‘thank you’ to the only God that saved my life, many who were better than me lost their lives that day hut I don’t know how God did, I don’t know why he did it but what I know is that God made a way for me to he alive till today..words cannot express how grateful I am to God first and then to you all for the numerous calls, text, posts, prayers and sound words. I also thank God for my Fwnd who went there with me Etieno Shugaboo Samuel, we came out alive. Am just speechless.
