Yola: Trailer Crushes 20 People To Death While Being Chased By The Police by osifoblessingme: 5:19am On Nov 13, 2019
Twenty people were feared killed yesterday after a trailer loaded with farm produce crushed several tricycles at Vinikling bridge (Hayin Gada) in Yola, Adamawa State.

It was gathered that the accident was caused by some police officers who wanted the truck driver to give them money. At a point, the driver lost control and the truck began to crush all the tricycles in its path.

Victims of the accident who were crushed to death by the trailer being chased by police officers after its driver refused giving them money have been evacuated to a hospital in Yola. Daily Post reported that some residents of the community said the police told them they were chasing the truck driver for carrying goods suspected to be foreign rice.

“But, there was no foreign rice in the truck, it was farm produce. The driver said they were chasing him for refusing to give them money at a checkpoint the police mounted,” a resident of the community, Umar Shehu said.

A student of Modibo Adama University, Salisu Ibrahim also recounted how he escaped getting crushed by the truck.

“I did not know what happened, but we suddenly saw the truck coming with speed and police van was pursuing it. All of us in our Keke Napep jumped out and fled, the driver lost control and the truck began to hit other Keke Napep and crushing people before our very own eyes. It was horrific,” Ibrahim said.

Until erring illiterate Police Officers Nationwide are sent to the guillotine to die as a form of deterrent for their gross misconduct & improper behaviour, trust me - others will never learn & this nonsense Police chase over bribery will never stop.

The stupid Senate would rather deliberate on passing an entirely useless "Hate-Speech Bill" just to suppress our freedom of speech - rather than passing the "Police Misconduct Bill".

Weapons are the tools of violence, all decent men detest them,

Weapons are the tools of fear,
A decent man will avoid them except in the direst necessity and, if compelled, will use them only with the utmost restraint.
Peace is the highest value..

I think this petty hungry fools called police and its likes has pushed us above the limit of patience and soon, I mean very soon if the this government doesn't take a stance and move to protect her citizenry, then there will be a damn consequences because this case is a case of avoidable death.

Rest in peace to the departed souls.

Sobs.

IT SHOULD BE POLICE CRUSHES 20 PEOPLE TO DEATH WHILE CHASING TRAILER.


The police should know better than to chase. While they could have just trailed along slowly.

They should have arrested and crushed those zoo police to death as well.
Nigerians wake up and start killing these animals whenever they cause the death of any innocent citizens.
Doomed country!

This blood letting by the security agents is alarming. Why this heartless chasing of the motorist all the time?
