On the 19th of September 2019, a young man named Ajabor Friday was shot by thieves and left for dead at Ogudu.
As usual, hospitals refused to take him in until officer Celestina intervened and had to threaten fire and brimstone before the young man was taken into a hospital.
Of course, they said the usual “we can not treat him without payment”.
According to reports, officer Celestina has spent over N400,000 (four hundred thousand naira) that she did not have (she even had to borrow) to see young Friday through a major operation and he is now out of the ICU and stabilised.
I asked her why she did it and she said when he looked up at her while bleeding, held her hand and said “mama don’t leave me, I do not want to die” she knew there was no way she would know peace if she did not try her best.
We celebrate you, officer Celestina Nwankwo.
God bless and replenish you!
