Helping mothers carry their children during a journey is a norm in this part of the world, having one die on you, however, is a strange occurrence.
A young lady on Twitter with the handle @shesamale shared the story of how she was saved from implication when she didn’t help a woman carry her baby during transit and the drama that ensued.
Read her narration below –
“one time, a woman pleaded with me to help lap one of her kids cos we was to alight at the same b/stop and i refused, she asked another woman and she agreed(even eyeing me sorta)long story short, we all got down from the bus and the child the woman helped with fell and died. i was so scared like the kid was literally lying there lifeless and for no reason,omo they held the woman o(the one that helped)and she was beaten so bad,the mother claimed she did something to her child and she was going to hold her responsible omo since that day,infact carry five kids i can never help you o,if you like say i’m wicked i agree,cos that woman prolly helped innocently and see what happened..it left a kind of trauma for me”
