Recall that Regina Askia–Williams had revealed the scariest moment of her life in an interview with The Punch.
She said “The September 11 attacks indeed have to be the scariest moment of my life.”
Having survived the terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre, New York, on September 11, 2001, Regina Askia shares her experience.
“I survived the attack on the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001. At that time, I was a manager at a company called Corporate Guard, which ran due diligence on Nigerian businesses seeking to partner with foreigners. We also marketed LaCampagne Tropicana Resorts. Our office was on the 79th floor of the International Office Suits. The planes hit just above our floor. I missed that catastrophe because I was pregnant with my second daughter, Teesa, and she was really hard on me, which made me late to work that day. I thank God I was late. The first call I got after the incident was from my boss, Mr Akinboboye, who was so relieved I was safe. I still get goosebumps when I think of the incident. I thank God for His mercies.”
