Chidinma Ajoku and her colleague Chima Nnaekpe, on Sunday, July 26, were returning home from work when, at Ilasamaja bus-stop, Mushin, a container fell on top of the bus carrying them, Premium Times reports.

It sounds ridiculous, a container suddenly falling on top of a bus. But it’s a story Nigerians are all too familiar with. Too many lives have been lost to an accident that should be unimaginable.

Unfortunately, Chidinma and Chima lost their lives.

And now, the Ajoku family are calling on the government to stop these avoidable deaths. They want to get the containers off our roads.

In an emotional video that went viral on Twitter, Chidinma’s mother narrates the tragic story of how she waited to receive a call from her daughter on Sunday but never did.

Our lives are in danger, Chidinma’s mother says in the video, because we encounter these trailers and containers every day on our roads.

In the same vein, Chidinma’s brother, Droan Ajoku, also took to Twitter to demand justice. All his family wants is justice for his sister, he said. He is “sick and tired of how Nigeria keeps failing us!”
