    but those hausa drivers won't believing it's size and weight is enough for it to be balanced.Authorities should step up their policy on road safety, especially when connected to container haulages.

    When will Nigeria eradicate this repeated menace on our roads? I even saw one of the 40ft truck recently on top speed. Boko haram on one side, Baddoo on d other side, herdsmen too doing their killings. And here are truck drivers also helping to increase death toll in Nigeria.

    I don't blame truck drivers but the ilretrate government of Nigeria that can't make a rule to container truck drivers; but instead killing innocent citizens and tax payers on daily basis. I don't really blame anybody that called Nigeria a zoo. Our mumu never do? We now witness flood in lekki, no country will invest such area without putting a lot of link road plus flyover at least good exit incase of emergency. I really pray for Nigeria" people die carelessly for lack of government.

    So this is how Bro Charles and his wonderful his children Peculiar and his sister lost their lives. This is indeed a wicked world. Such a hard working man. How on earth will the wife and aged mother bear this? Oh Lord God, we can not question you if not, I would've asked load of questions. May their soul rest in Peace.
