God of mercy please protect all these Lagosians from all those rickety danfos, Ambode stop their operations, their danfos are old and very dangerous, 2 accidents today, 1st at anthony killed 2, injured 14, nd at stadium, killing 5 only today. Late last year a danfo burnt 14 passengers to their untimely death after the back tyre pulled off on high speed at Otedola bridge. Apparently the state government should look into these cases. The fault is always from the drivers and their commercial vehicles,

Funny enough, VIOs don't inspect these vehicles. They only harras private car owners!

The Lagos state government must act as fast as possible .This danfo buses are now death trap to all Lagosians. I lost my University class governor, an intelligent girl in that
Danfo that burnt 14 passengers at Otedola bridge. Just 2weeks ago my friend lost her elder sister, a registered nurse in a Danfo that went up in flames at YABA area.I am even so scared about them now, since they are the only means of transport in my area.

Ironically, the VIOs and the Road Safety Marshals would never stop the so called danfos and other yellow commercial buses for inspection. Rather, their attention is always directed at private car owners for the singular reason to make money.
