Nigeria: A Dangote Cement lorry suffered a brake failure on a hill in Nasarawa State and collided with a people carrier, killing all 11 passengers. Passengers of other vehicles were also injured. The Punch newspaper has described the lorry as ‘heavily-laden.’

This follows the head-on collision of a Dangote lorry with a bus in Ikorodu, Lagos State, in August 2019, which killed three and injured all 69 other bus passengers. The lorry, carrying 45t, significantly over its rated capacity, had suffered a brake failure. Both incidents are under investigation by the company.
