Officer Celestina Nwankwo Is A Hero. Here’s Why
Written by Smooth FM on October 2, 2019
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 saying “we can not treat him without payment”. Officer Celestina reportedly intervened and spent her own money to ensure the victim received treatment.
According to the police officer, she spent over N400,000 (four hundred thousand naira) to see young Friday through a major operation and he is now out of the ICU and stabilised.
She said when he looked up at her while bleeding, the young man held her hand and said “mama don’t leave me, I do not want to die”. Officer Celestina said at that point, she knew there was no way she could be at peace if she did not do her best to save him.
