We probably all know that by being on social media platforms, we invariably expose ourselves but I personally do not consciously realise just how much.
There's this lady I follow on Twitter and instagram. I don't know her, never met her. I follow her because I think she's a brilliant mind. She is VERY good at what she does and she inspires me. From following her on instagram, I get to see pictures of not just herself, but her friends and family too. She lives partly in Lagos and partly in Newyork. I learnt from instagram that she is currently in Lagos and a friend of hers is visiting Lagos at the same time too so fancy my amazement when as I was driving out of a supermarket in Lagos (Lekki) yesterday I lock eyes with this friend of hers waiting to use the ATM machine. Wow! I felt like a private investigator watching an unsuspecting target (cheaters comes to mind. Lol) It was so surreal. I kind of felt naked. It really got me thinking....

I heard the news in the afternoon after I had just driven past the scene of the accident without realising that anything of the sort had happened there. The news reported That residents of the area were angry and blaming the government for not haven provided a pedestrian bridge. Well, while I agree that a road of that size should have one, it must bd said that these bridges are not used where provided. I remember last year I think on new year eve, a friend of mine witnessed an accident just by the pedestrian bridge by the Jakande roundabout on the same road where a woman attempting to cross the road was runover and killed. The driver didn't stop.
I believe that what we need is education on the danger of crossing such roads and also a deterrent for would-be violators.
My heart goes out to the families and friends of those children and all who have been affected by this unfortunate incident. May the souls of the departed rest in peace, amen.
