According to them most of the young guys are into the business and the rate of accidents being recorded daily is on the record high.
“This is not the first time an accident of such is happening here. There a lot of young boys who are into the Okada business and it is due to the poor nature of our roads. Mostly, commercial vehicles do not want to use the roads. So the okada is very common here. It is helping us but the accidents are getting too much”. One of the eye witnesses indicated.
