In Lagos: Tanker explosion rocks Lagos-Ibadan expressway again

Tanker explosion rocks Lagos again

The tanker fell as a result of the terrible state of the road and spilled its content.

Lagos has once again been rocked by an explosion after a fuel-laden tanker fell and exploded beside Ojo Barracks bus stop along Lagos-Badagry Expressway on Tuesday, October 2, 2018.

According to a report by Vanguard, the tanker fell as a result of the terrible state of the road and spilled its contents, resulting in the burning of no fewer than eight other vehicles plying the road at the same time.

Many commuters reportedly escaped the inferno by jumping out of their vehicles and it is unclear at the time of filing this report if there are any fatalities.

 

General Manager of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), Adesina Tiamiyu, told Premium Times that no lives were lost in the accident.

"Three buses, one car, six trucks were affected. No life was lost nor injury sustained," he said.

The incident comes three months after at least 12 died when a Mack tanker truck, loaded with 33,000 litres of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), lost control of its brake and exploded on Otedola Bridge along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway after spilling its content on June 28, 2018.
