  1. What a sad, wicked day. 10 people lost their lives for a mistake that was avoidable. So sorry for their families.

  3. TOO BAD! THIS IS where myself have been guilty on occasions, refusing to stop for the road safety guys. Not the wisest thing to do, but it seemed more convinient. Look, Reader, I know I’m a law breaker here, and so you don’t need to tell me. At times you wouldn’t want to see a trap and march piously into it. I’ll get better someday, anyway.

    THE FULL STORY, I believe, is that the road safety people had first tried to stop the driver, who wouldn’t stop. Then they block the driver using their own car, and the driver, trying to dudge them, lost control and swerved into the ditch. Lives lost. A sad one. But is this not a breach of the road safety ethics on the part of the road safety guys?

  4. Hmmmm, just because he was trying to escape from FRSC, he had to endanger the lives of his passengers, including. I’m really speechless. I don’t know what to say to the driver. May their souls RIP

  5. Drivers need to first think of d passengers before thinkg of d mny they will spend, wish they can do that. What amt of mny is more precious than d lives of human beings. I hope they will start using their heads.
