HOW CORRUPTION AND RECKLESSNESS KILLED THEM!
This ghastly accident happened on Monday,18/9/2017, at the flyover bridge in Kawo Kaduna. Ms Rabi Adam (in yellow dress lying dead on the road and in passport size photograph), was a student of the National Open University. She was on her way to sit for exam at Rigachukun, when she lost her life.
The yellow stripped barrier pole shown in the attached pictures was erected by Kaduna state government to stop lorries and heavy goods vehicles plying over the flyover bridge at Kawo. One reckless lorry driver decided to ignore traffic warning sign and attempted to access the bridge, thereby knocking the barrier off. It then dropped and destroyed the blue vehicle with its occuP@nts, which was passing beneath the bridge. Six people confirmed dead at the scene. One person critically ill was taken to hospital.
Unless somebody in charge of roads at Kaduna state looks into this disgraceful and criminal negligence, our people will keep losing their lives at the Kawo flyover bridge. May the souls of the deceased rest in peace. Amen.
