Students of various tertiary educational institutions in Akure, the Ondo State capital, on Friday, trooped out on the Akure-Ilesha highway, barricading the road to protest against incessant accidents caused by tankers, lorries and other articulated vehicles which have led to the death of many of their colleagues.

As early as 9 o’clock in the morning, the students, carrying placards with various inscriptions and singing solidarity songs, stormed the road to show their grievances.

Some of their leaders who spoke to Channels Television lamented that hundreds of students have died in recent times in accidents.

They pleaded with the Federal Government to, as a matter of urgency; restrict the operations of these vehicles to the nights in order to minimize the loss of lives. (Channels TV)
