A truck driver, Mr Ejiro Otarigho, has been acclaimed a hero for risking his life to drive a blazing vehicle out of a residential neighbourhood in Agbarho town, Ughelli North local government area, Delta state.
The man’s bravery appears to have protected life and property in Agbarho town, which is understandable.
While swimming in the inferno, Agba Abraham, the Delta State government’s senior special assistant, confirmed the driver’s hail and health on Facebook.
Agba Abraham expressed herself as follows:
“For averting a national tragedy that would have devastated lots of lives and homes in Agbarho Town, Ughelli North LGA, this truck driver, Mr Ejiro Otarigho, deserves a National Honours.” 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.”
