Just opposite the scene of Thursday’s Lagos tanker fire accident, another car accident occurred on Friday, involving a yellow and black painted commercial bus and a white bus.
According to the Rapid Response Squad, the accident occurred as a result of the recklessness of the Danfo driver who drove against traffic.
