A pastor has revealed what transpired between him and some police officers after his motor broke down on the Third Mainland bridge in Lagos. According to Adeniyi Adekunle, he had a flat tyre on the busy bridge and pulled over to change it before he was approached by a concerned policeman.
The policeman who offered to help him, called his colleagues to help the stranded man change the car tyre and also helped him in washing his hand after the assistance.
The pastor said to his surprise, the policemen didn’t ask for a dime after the help as they bade him goodbye.
Below is what the pastor wrote:-
“I was driving on third mainland bridge and had a flat tyre just before the Yaba turning. As I pulled off the road to change the tyre, a police man approached me asking what the problem was. Before long, he had called his colleagues and they were helping me change my car tyre.
I must confess, I was a bit uncomfortable seeing the officers getting down to change the tyre, while I assisted. After changing the tyre, they gave me a pack of sachet water to wash my hands, then I was waiting for their next move…
To my surprise, they simply wished me well, as I continued my journey, absolutely no request or demand for anything.So I want to say a very big thank you to officers Zakari, Adeyemi and Augustine Ameh for really demonstrating that the police can really be your friends.
Just about the same time, another driver pulled over, who had missed his way; they were equally as helpful with such gracious attitude.
With all the negative things that come out of the Nigerian Police Force, it was so amazing seeing these men of the Nigerian Police demonstrate such selflessness at no cost.
To officers Zakari, Adeyemi and Augustine Ameh, I salute and honour you for your conduct.I pray you will see and enjoy the reward of the good investment you are making in this country.I hope this can somehow get to the force authorities.
God bless you!”
