A car owned by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) was engaged in a traffic accident on Friday, February 24, 2023, according to a report on NTA news.
When the tragedy occurred, the car was apparently transporting election supplies from Abuja to Lagos state. There were no reported fatalities in the collision. According to NTA News, the car involved in a collision at the Giri Roundabout bridge in Abuja when it was on election duty.
The truck was severely damaged in the NTA News video, which showed some officials who appeared to be NSCDC personnel inspecting the wreckage. See the images below.
Following the dissemination of the news, many Nigerians have criticized the authorities on social media for the tardy distribution of some of these election materials. On social media, some users questioned why the supplies couldn't have just flown from Abuja to Lagos instead of having to convey them by road.
One user remarked: "We apologize, but there was nothing they could have done to resolve this. I find it unbelievable that supplies are still being transported all the way from Abuja to Lagos, and even on the road."
