The reason behind the accident is not yet apparent, but one of the passengers said that the lorry was over loaded with people.

 “We were 120 persons in the lorry and since we have started our journey it was wobbling from side to side and eventually it has turned over” said Girma.

The number of Ethiopian migrants coming into the territories of Puntland has been lately significantly increasing, and the main reason behind is that they want to sneak into the ocean intending to reach in the Arab world.

The administration of Puntland very often reiterates it has completely stopped migrants come into its territories crossing to the Gulf countries. radiodalsan
