On Sunday, SARS almost killed me. I was on a bike from shitta to unilag, as soon as we got to cold stone at Herbert macaulay road, these guys raced towards us in a mini bus, attempted to hit us but my bike guy was quick to swerve, they hit the guys behind us.
It was a terrible hit, the bike guy and his passenger fell to the ground, these government approved armed robbers didn’t care, they picked them up and put them in the mini bus and drove off.
100% sure those guys had injuries from that fall but e no concern dem. I’m tired tbh
