Lady recounts how several women in traffic stood up in defence of a woman treated poorly by a man

Looks like there was women revolution yesterday. A lady has narrated an interesting story about a group of women who stood up for a fellow woman they didn't even know.

According to Kutu Ameji who shared the story, a woman who was trying to drop off her kids in school was harassed by a man who felt she didn't have the right of way so she couldn't pass.
He intimidated the lady who matched him strength for strength and when things got out of hand, other women joined in and let's say it became interesting.

Kutu shared her story on Facebook, read it below:

Toh, the woman got into her car, got all her kids out, their lunch boxes, school bags and what not. Accompanied by her maid (or younger sister, hard to tell), she locked her car and walked away.
The man was stupefied. He could not believe it. He became even more furious. He and the other men there then moved towards her car and attempted to deflate her tyres.
Then the unexpected happened.
Suddenly, all the women in traffic, as if some signal had gone off, as if following a planned script, flew out of their cars and rushed to attack the men, defending the car, surrounding it, ready to draw blood.
I don't think the men expected it. The surprise fury made them back off but the women were not fooled. They stayed around the car, daring anyone to touch it, providing a united front. When the stubborn man saw it, he that said he would NEVER reverse till the end of time, got into his car, reversed and drove off.
The women protected that car till the owner got back. Then they all got back in their cars and drove off as the traffic began to move. The remarkable thing is, none of them went to this woman and told her "Madam, look we defended your car when the men wanted to deflate it". The woman did not even know of the attempt by the men to deflate her tyres. She did not need to. Her sisters, random strangers, women whom she had never met, whom she might never meet, fought for her, had her back while she went to take care of her children.
Women whom the world said they never support each other. That lie, like so many others told for a long time, that women are their own worst enemies was debunked.
We became her Dora Millaje.
