Tragedy was averted on Friday, September 29th, after a container fell along Akilo road in Agege area of Lagos. The Fully-loaded 30ft container fell onto the Fence of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria - Fire Service Company. According to reports, the co-Driver a.k.a "Motor Boy" narrowly escaped death when the incident happened.

He had reportedly alighted from the passenger side to control the traffic, so as to pave way for his driver when suddenly the Container fell.

The Lagos State emergency center were notified immediately after the accident. No life was lost in the incident.

Why aren't these containers tied for Christ sake? It's done in every country why must Nigeria be different? Which kind of country is this?.

I used to prove van danme with those trucks then. Always claiming to own my lane until one fell just 5 meters ahead of me and only a barricade was between us, Alhamdulilah.
He wasnt even speeding and was driving at a snail speed cause of the bad road. I watched as the container fell down and driver just casually came down from the truck like nothing happened. He wasn’t even shaken.
If he had crushed people that day. He would have easily blended into the crowd and escaped.
Now i give them 50m gap anytime am driving and make sure there are close to 4 vehicles between us.

There is no where in the world containers are tied,The are meant to balance on thier own weight. where in the body of a container are you going to anchor?
bad roads and reckless drivers are the problem!Look closely containers dnt jst fall off, the lorries turn over.

Thats even Dangerous cos it means if the container moves, it will take teh truck with it.
the 4 edges of a container sits on knuckles on a truck however most truck we carry containers onin 9ja are not meant to ferry containers, the are flat beds.A proper container truck has just the knocker and anchor points on it.I aint at work today would have snapped a pic of waht I mean

I am not an engineer and not debating
I am just worried that moving around in a car or a bus has become a very dangerous activity
My question is what can we do about these falling containers?
Whose fault is it that we have so many incidents in Nigeria?
My BP goes up whenever I am in a vehicle and a truck with a container moves into the lane beside ours
