Residents At Festac Link Bridge Scoop Fuel After Petrol Tanker Falls Off

An explosion was prevented today in Lagos when a tanker with 33,000 litres of petrol overturned while conveying the content to a destination.

The content spilled rapidly due to the effect of gravity on the overturned tanker and residents came out to scoop petrol when the accident left fuel gushing out from the tanker on the road.

The Director-General, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu said the remaining petrol was later trans-loaded, adding that emergency responders were on the ground to prevent any secondary incident.

Firefighters, Lagos Fire Service and the Nigeria Police were also on ground to help if there be any emergency as the scene was invaded by people carrying kegs attempting to scoop the product.
