A truck driver has been praised for risking his life to get a burning fuel tanker out of a residential area in order to save people's lives and property.
After risking his life to drive a blazing truck out of a residential area to save lives and property, a truck driver has been acclaimed a hero.
Similarly to the event in Apiatse, Ghana, the truck driver this time drove through a residential neighborhood in Agbarho town, Ughelli North local government area, Delta State, Nigeria, after his tanker caught fire.
The driver's bravery looks to have saved many lives and properties in Agbarho town, as abandoning the vehicle for fear of losing his life would have been a major calamity.
Agba Abraham, the Delta State government's senior special assistant, confirmed the driver's hail and health in a lengthy post on Facebook.
"This truck driver Mr Ejiro Otarigho deserves a National Honours for averting a National tragedy that would have destroyed sources of life and property in Agbarho Town, Ughelli North LGA," Agba Abraham tweeted. See how the truck driver puts his life on the line to get the truck out of town and into a safe area. I implore all revelant authorities, both national and state, to take action. I spoke with Mr. Ejiro, and he is safe and sound.
"I just spoke with Mr Ejiro Otarigho, the heroic driver, and he is hail and healthy." Let's keep sharing this post until the relevant agency takes action."
