A disturbed Nigerian, who happened to be a passenger on a commercial bus, has shared a very frightening picture of the improvised petrol tank of a commercial bus plying Cele express to Orile, Lagos.
The bus was said to have passengers sitting along with the open gallon of the highly flammable fuel with a hose dropped in it, taking petrol to the engine. This sends chills down my spine.
Cases of buses bursting into flames while in motion, have been rampant in Lagos, where lawlessness knows no bound, with most of them being caused by this very dangerous act.
How can anyone in their right mind get on a bus with this kind of bomb, in the name of Improvising, and then they stay put, calmly awaiting their junction? This is suicidal to everyone who is in that automobile, because the running engine generates heat, and the open fuel is desperately in search of heat, just the right amount heat, to help it explode. Harmattan not withstanding.
The people who are this lawless and strong headed and get away with it, because the uniform men who were placed on the road to ensure things like this don’t happen, are more interested in receiving bribes, than actually doing their job.
This is unbelievable. Just horrible.
