  1. Wow, what a shocking incident! It's unfortunate to hear about the Abuja-bound Rep member involved in an auto accident. Road safety should always be a top priority. On a different note, if anyone is looking to sell Toyota for cash, this could be a good time to consider options. Stay safe on the roads, everyone!
