Not less than 6 passengers, including a driver were reportedly killed by Dangote trailer on Saturday 15th, 2020.
The incident, which occurred at the Toll-gate Bus Stop along Lagos –Abeokuta Express Way, claimed 6 passengers of a commercial bus, popularly called ‘Danfo’ including the driver.
The trailer was reportedly coming from Sango area, when it had a brake failure, and there was nothing the driver could do except to hit the vehicle which was in the front, and unfortunately, this happened to be the ill-fated commercial vehicle.
Surprisingly, while people felt sad about the incident for the souls of the passengers, who lost their lives in the incident, the driver of the Dngote trailer was unhurt, and this fueled the anger of the youths, who immediately set the trailer ablaze.
Witnesses revealed that it took a plea from sympathizers for the youths not to descend on the Dangote driver.
The incident reportedly caused lots of traffic hold-up, which we gathered extended beyond to Sango and almost got to Ifo.
