But for God’s divine intervention, the family of Mrs Blessing Essien would be shedding tears of sorrow as a stray bullet allegedly fired by the former member representing Essien Udim State Constituency in the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, during Tuesday’s siege at the Assembly complex
Mrs Essien, who lives in one of the houses close to the House of Assembly, took to her Facebook timeline to express appreciation to God for not allowing the bullet, which according to her, pierced the roof, scattered the ceiling and landed on the floor of her house, to hit anyone while celebrating the birthday of her husband.
She wrote “… And God saved us, the devil lost the battle. Yesterday, while we were celebrating my husband’s birthday at home, we heard a loud sound just to discover something horrific happened. A stray bullet from the House of Assembly area pierced the roof, scattered the ceiling and landed on the floor of my house. I would have lost someone if that bullet rested on anyone…
“Dear legislators, Federal might, political thugs, Nigeria police, our dear Governor and beloved people of Akwa Ibom State, there are people who are not interested in political interests, money sharing and tussles. We just want a peaceful State where we can move about and do our businesses freely, the lives of our people are in great danger, let absolute peace be restored to this state. We don’t have another Akwa Ibom state.
Join us glorify God for sparing our lives once again……. and there shall be no loss. To God be all the glory.”
