The taxi driver escaped death by Providence. Below is how an eyewitness reported the incident;
“I was driving out from GRA on my way to work early this morning in Benin city when I came across this accident scene. The taxi driver told me that he was entering second east circular from Ekiosa axis of sakponba road by EDPA when this tipper lorry coming from the ring road axis of the same road, tried to avoid a commercial bus and ran into his Audi 80 car. The lorry driver seems to have lost control. Thank God no life was lost.
My people we just entered the “ember ember” months, a period when everybody seems to be more in a hurry than every other period of the year. Please let’s drive with care, avoid drink driving, put our vehicles in motorable conditions and always be safety conscious.”
