Former Big Brother Naija housemate and social media influencer, Cindy Okafor, has recounted how she escaped death on her 25th birthday. This comes after she posted the picture of a badly mangled car on her Instagram page on January 14.
During a chat with Sunday Scoop, Okafor said she was asleep while a friend of hers drove and she woke up after the impact of the accident, which took place in Lekki, Lagos. But luckily no-one was hurt.
_“I hosted a dinner party for my 25th birthday. After the party, me and my siblings got into the car and headed for a hotel. A friend drove the car. I was actually asleep and did not know how the accident happened. I only woke up after the impact.”_
_“The accident happened in Lekki (Lagos) but thankfully, none of us in the car sustained any major injury. We, however, went to the hospital for a general check-up, and there was no sign of internal bleeding. Some people say they see signs before an accident happens but I did not see any. I was only feeling uncomfortable because it was late.”_
_“Our concern was about flouting the curfew. The incident happened around 2am. I was really scared because I still have a lot of things to achieve. I had never experienced anything like that.”_
Okafor, who had once stated that she struggled to get into the limelight before her brief stint in the reality show further noted that life had been good to her.
_“It has been a roller coaster ride for me. I would not say I have got what I want but I am on my way to achieving more successes. I have also had a lot of opportunities. But that is what I signed up for, so I am fine. As long as I know that I did not hurt anyone, it is mostly a case of misunderstanding and one cannot explain to everyone about such incidents.”_
_“I am not someone that lets people’s opinions get to me. Sometimes, when I see a horrible comment, I ignore it. I did not kill anyone, so if I voice my opinion, it should not be a problem. That is why I like Bobrisky. He does not care about haters. Some people do things that I cannot do but I don’t have to be judgemental about how they live their lives.”_
