  5. Ohh its so painful…today was also one of the bad day in lagos..so my regard to those families that people is among that they should be sorry and may god grant soul..and forgive all there sin and wipe it off..

  6. Goverment should repair all roads in Nigeria: cities, towns, villages e.g. Ekosodin Road, Benin City etc. Then the road can be used for short distances like Lagos to Akure by the rich, comfortable and the poor and the air used for longer distances except otherwise. In doing so, the money used for a stone throw journey by air instead of road can be saved for better things. May the souls of the departed rest in perfect peace, Amen
