Skit maker Chukwuemeka Ejekwu, popularly known as Sabinus, has survived a car crash hours after rumours of his engagement circulated on the internet.
According to reports, a drunk driver ran into him on his way home from his partner’s house in Lagos.
Videos of the damaged car were uploaded on Instagram on Saturday. In the video, an unhappy Sabinus could be seen explaining the incident to those around him.
The comedian took to his Instagram live some minutes after the incident to assure his fans that he is safe and well.
Sabinus said, “For the people calling, I am receiving messages, I am okay. Don’t be afraid. The only thing I keep saying is people should avoid drinking before driving. It is the first time I will be seeing a car driving in one lane, and another car in another lane drive into the other lane and scatter the motor.
“We thank God. We thank God for life first. So Sabinus, I am safe, nothing happened to me. I am okay. Don’t be afraid. Who dies are those with bad hands those whose hands are not clean. We thank God.”
A few hours before the crash, some media reports claimed the 27-year-old got engaged to his girlfriend in a private ceremony in Era-Ojo area of Lagos State.
According to the report, Sabinus attempted to secretly perform the engagement rites to his partner but was seen in a video kneeling in front of his said in-laws.
While some congratulated him, others speculated that it could be another skit in the making.
