A petrol tanker has apparently crumpled on the Lagos-Abeokuta interstate, pulverizing an auto and causing genuine uproar in the zone.
Scarcely two weeks after a tanker stacked with 33,000 liters of petrol fell at Owode-Iyana Ilogbo hub along Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, another tanker likewise stacked with similar liters of petrol fell on the road early at the beginning of today at Singer Area, Sango-Ota, Punch Metro reports.
The tanker going outside Sango-Ota fell at a fizzled segment of the road and pounded a white Hyundai conveyance van, which was close by.
The substance of the tanker spilled on the road and waste channels around the zone, constraining vehicles to be occupied to the contrary path, which prompted a gridlock.
The disastrous tanker fell at a segment straightforwardly before a Conoil filling station. In any case, the opportune landing of security and activity offices to the scene spare what might been a calamity, as okada riders and road urchins had blockaded the scene with different sizes of barrels and other holders, prepared to scoop petrol.
Be that as it may, policemen, work force of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps, Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps and the Federal Road Safety Corps, were on ground and they kept the interlopers under control.
The Public Relations Officer of TRACE, Babatunde Akinbiyi, told our journalist on the phone that the occurrence happened in the vicinity of 5.30am and 6am.
