A 45-year-old commercial driver, Saturday Akpomose, narrowly
escaped death last Saturday, after he was attacked by seven dogs at Ajah area
of Lagos State. The timely intervention of residents and passers-by saved the
driver from the dogs.

Akpomose,Akpomose, who hails from Akwa Ibom State, had gone
to the area with his wife to visit his in-law, Mr. Christian Peter, when the
dogs pounced on him.
Vanguard gathered that the dogs, owned by a Navy Captain,
were being taken out to ease themselves at a nearby uncompleted building, when
they saw Akpomose and pounced on him.

The matter was reported at Ogombo Police Division, which
referred Akpomose to the General Hospital at Akodo, for immediate treatment due
to the severity of his injuries.
His story
“My wife and I went to visit my in-law on Sunday. He lives
at Okun Ajah Road, in Eti-Osa East Local Council Development Area. Later, on
Tuesday morning, I just strolled out of the compound and came across the dogs.
“As I stepped out, I saw a security man coming out with
several dogs. They were very huge Alsatian dogs. I was terrified when I saw
them and as I tried to go back in, they overpowered the man holding them.
“As I bent down to pick a stone and scare them away, they
pounced on me and that was all I knew. They bit me in almost all parts of my
body. As I screamed, some residents came out and tried to scare away the dogs
with sticks.
“My screams even woke up my in-law who was asleep in the
house. At a time, I became weak and unconscious and it was the people who
rushed me to the hospital.”
Dogs’ owner intervenes
When Vanguard visited the residence of the dogs’ owner, the
Chief Security Officer attached to the building, who identified himself simply
as Victor, said: “Immediately I got back home, I explained his condition to my
boss who directed me to see his family and take a decision on how to transfer
the victim to his own private hospital for proper medical attention.
“We have bought all the drugs they asked us to buy. We are
showing the receipt to you just to let you know that we care about the victim.”
