Lagos state have invented a new way of putting out fire with faeces, and this has got everyone talking.
From the video shared by Sahara Reporters, men are seen putting out a fire that threatened to engulf a car; this surprising incident occurred in the Maryland area of the state. Apparently, the ‘shit-carrying’ truck was passing by when the driver spotted the burning car and offered to help put the fire out by spraying shit on it.
And it really did work, because the raging flames reduced to a smoky mess, while the tarred-road got drenched in shit.
The video has stirred a major conversation on social media. Often, we read stories of properties which get lost during fire outbreaks because the fire service department failed to show up on time or simply said they ran out of water.
Now, folks have helped saved a car from getting totaled by fire. However, the unprecedented incident stirred mixed reactions among Nigerians. While some think the action of the sewage truck driver was a commendable one, others think it is cringe-worthy.
