We will meet soon,” wrote Sheikh Hamdan in his Instagram story. . “I saw the blocks but didn’t really think much of it,” he had told Khaleej Times. “As I waited, a taxi went over the block and the driver almost lost control of his car. That is when I realized that it could cause a major accident.

“To be honest, I didn’t think I was doing anything special,” he said. “I was just making sure no one would get hurt. If God forbid, one of our riders hit it, it could even cause death. That is why I acted quickly,” said Abdul Ghafoor in his interview with Khaleej Times.
