  1. You see, if the driver who collided with Police war was trained, before acquiring licence, he will not be on the opposite direction.

    All car drivers must surrender their old licence and go through road safety rule, road signs test and driving test before obtaining the new driving licence.

    • Star….please forget Road Safety Rules, even up till date, nothing changes….they create the rules but no body to implement it, many people still acquired their License without taken a step from their home even till date…..we are in nigeria, have you forget that “Nigeria Law is just like a Cobwebs? that only caught small/poor ant only”
      May their soul rest in peace….

  2. After graduating from 15 months training @ Police College, now them to reap what the sow, death struck them, Oh God give them internal life Forever in Your Kingdom Amen
