I disagree with the figure, such a disastrous accident must have taken more lives than said. Our government trying to hide the truth as usual. May the souls of the departed rest in peace. Amen

Nah... The casualties should be more than that. If the videos making the rounds are anything to go by then LASEMA might be playing down figures.

Hmm, all these dangers can b averted if d right thing is done. These heavy duty trucks should move only in D night, create alternative means of transportation for containers(sea), gasoline(railway) etc. We shouldn't just pray alone because prayers won't work if u don't put in efforts. Nigeria is a crawling country with d most prayerful citizens.

GoTV:
sad Even though I'm a born again Christian, the nonsense we Christians do on that road is enough to attract the anger of natural disasters. Christians have claimed Ibadan expressway as their entitlement hereby causing traffic jams with irresponsible church programs that would have been banned in Saudi Arabia or other sane countries. If that tanker driver had not encountered traffic jam due to Christian churches on that road, he would have swerved into the bush and this wasted lives will be saved. Federal government should please ban churches on Lagos Ibadan expressway angry

Mr. Christian, you shot yourself in the foot when you called Saudi a sane country.
