Nigerian recording artiste, Orezi is seeking an N100 million compensation from the Taxi company, Bolt. This has come one month after an auto accident on Third Mainland Bridge, Lagos.
On December 6, the Nigerian singer, Orezi was involved in a car crash; the crash occurred on the popular Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos.
The singer explained that he was rushing to meet up with a morning flight to Delta State for a performance; so he took a taxi owned Bolt at about 5:30 am in the morning; and all of a sudden he woke up to a crash on Third Mainland bridge.
Orezi, through his lawyers ‘Abimbola Fakeye Chambers’ has now written a letter of demand to Bolt (formerly known as Taxify) to request N100m as damages.
In the letter, ‘the unnecessary hardship, loss of income, medical bills spent and more importantly, death scare arising from this incident has necessitated this letter and we have been instructed to employ every legal means to recover adequate and due recompense’.
See the full letter below.
One month ago, Orezi almost lost his life in a car accident. The singer broke his jaw in the crash and he is seeking compensation.
According to him, ‘I was seated at the back when it happened and it seems I crash my jaw into the front seat so I lost consciousness and was just bleeding from everywhere. I still managed to make the flight after I got first aid but I’m fine now’.
