report, there were no officials from both the Calabar Urban Development Authority and the Federal Road Safety Corps at the scene of the accident.

Mr. Ilem Okoi, a civil servant who was at the scene told crossriverwatch that, “Officials of Calabar Urban Development Authority and Road Safety Corps should insist on the company clearing the place of these sharp broken bottles”.

According to him, their experience in the past is that when crashes like these occur, “along here, after removing their truck, the broken bottles are left behind to inflict wounds on people especially the women who clean the streets” Okoi said
