Several pupils have reportedly been killed by a hit-and-run truck driver along Ogunnusi Road, Grammar School bus stop, Lagos State.
According to reports, the pupils were going home after closing from school and wanted to cross the road when the truck ran over them.
The videos from the Ojodu Berger trailer accident are heartbreaking.
I hate to see this child crying in pain, can’t they at least dope him up on painkillers before starting all this?
