Strongly advocating against driving while intoxicated, Rotimi offered prayers for the souls of those who had passed away.

“I cried like a baby
Yesterday was a very sad day as I witnessed a gory-looking fatal accident along the Ibadan/Lagos expressway. I was in tears while I watched many fight for their lives in pain. 6 died and others were hospitalized.
Thanks to FRSC along that axis that showed as early as they could after my life video.
The driver of the bus was drunk.


The passengers were said to be cautioning the bus driver’s reckless driving but he was been defensive that he knew what he was doing. Now many are gone.


While we pray that God heals others with brutal injuries.

Thanks to everyone who showed concern and helped yesterday from the FRSC guys, citizens, and the doctors.

Feb 11th wasn’t a good day on Ibadan through the Lagos expressway. There were also 2 other accidents in front, making 3 different accident spots on the same day.

May accident not be our portion.

Let’s always remember to thank God for going out and returning home safe”.
