Truck driver hailed a hero after he risked his life to drive a burning truck out of a residential area to save lives (videos)
The heroic act of a truck driver has been hailed by Nigerians after he risked his life to save others.
The man, identified as Mr Ejiro Otarigho, drove a burning truck away from a densely populated residential area in Agbarho Town, Ughelli North, Delta State, to a sparsely populated area to reduce the damage it would cause if it explodes.
In a video shared online, the driver is seen driving the truck, not minding the risk of explosion. He drove it to a bush path without houses and stores nearby.
Thankfully, he came out of the burning truck alive. No life was lost.
Nigerians have gone on Facebook to hail and thank him.
