Ejiro, who recently got married “had decided not to be selfish with his life and family concerns, but made up his mind to risk his own life to prevent a major fire accident that would have thrown the entire State into pandemonium from happening”.

In a situation like this, another truck driver would have abandoned the already burning truck laden with diesel on the road and escape with his life.
