“On the 7th day of May,
I entered a vehicle at Multi Line Transport Company located at park road by Georges, Aba.
“While the driver was heaping heavy loads on the vehicle, we the passengers complained about the excess luggage, comprising big sack bags, bad tyres and all what not but the paid deaf ears to our complaints.
“After a while, the driver left the station. Upon getting to Ngor Okpala, in Imo state, the tyre burst and the driver totally lost control of the vehicle due to over speeding as the vehicle started somersaulting and this happened for four times according to the witnesses.
“Meanwhile, I was sitting at the front sit beside the door. The vehicle somersaulted from the right side where I was sitting so it landed on my right hand and brushed it in on the tarred road, giving me internal bleeding. We were rushed to a nearby hospital at Ngo Okpala, Aywa hospital who could not handle most of the cases but were only able to offer us first treatments and subsequently referred us to FMC where the major treatment took place and is still taking place. I underwent a surgical operation wherein my tendor was repaired (affected veins and internal injury in my chest).
Narrating the ugly incident, Azurunwa, who is visibly battling with unbearable pains from the severe injuries sustained the accident, bemoaned the nonchalant attitude of the company and its driver, coupled with the hysterical, deluge of calls from his teaming customers whose goods were contained in the bag perceived to have been seized by the management of Multi-Line Aba branch.
According to the victim, all his efforts geared towards getting possession of his belongings which were recovered at the accident scene had proven abortive.
“During all this stress the transport company didn’t show concern even after they where informed about where I was admitted, yet they didnt visit as I was admitted for two weeks in FMC.
“After the first surgical operation, I was discharged I on May 17 but I left the hospital on the May 19 and booked for a second operation which was to take place in a couple weeks. As at Thursday, June 15, 2023, I was at the hospital and was told I would come for the second operation on July 21.
Continuing, he said: “Meanwhile, I was rightly informed that all my goods were duly recovered from the scene and I had hoped to have access to them so as to deliver them to my customers.
“However, to my consternation, I asked for my luggage where hundreds of sown Cashmere materials (goods) which cost not less than four million naira were packed but the company have been telling me different incoherent stories about them.
“So, I want to use this medium to cry to the general public so they can lend their voices in recovering my goods from Multi-Line Transport Company. The pressure from my customers has a huge influence on my quick recovery. Thank God I survived the accident because I was the most victimised. “, He wailed.
