TomiWaziri

14 May 2021
On September 12, 2019, Tomi Waziri, an Uber driver, was driving from 1004, Victoria Island to Ajao Estate to drop off a passenger when in a traffic jam at the popular Apongbon Bridge, known for nefarious activities, two youths with locally made guns came up to his car window trying to rob him of his phone and other valuable. Panicking, he turned away to get his phone but as he turned to the armed robbers, what he heard was a loud bang. He was shot in the face with a local gun filled with pellets. Tobi lost his sight on the spot and has remained blind ever since even after medical assistance. Rather than Tomi falling into depression and lose all hope as he could no longer use his eyes, he decided to give back to humanity as a part of his healing process.
