Diesel-loaded tanker

Diesel-loaded tanker falls on Lagos-Ibadan road. An collision between a diesel-laden tanker and a towing truck outside the Mountain of Fire Ministry on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway’s Magboro axis has caused traffic gridlock for motorists traveling from Berger to the Mowe/Ibafo sector.

When our journalist arrived at the accident site, it was discovered that the tanker was pouring its contents on the road, while police officers were on the ground preventing hoodlums from scooping the fuel spilling from the truck. Officials from the Federal Road Safety Corps were also seen controlling the traffic situation.

PUNCH According to Metro, the accident occurred on Tuesday when the diesel-loaded tanker attempted to overtake a truck, culminating in a collision with the truck.

The towing vehicle, with registration number LSD386HG, was damaged by the side.

The wrecked tow truck

According to an eyewitness, Segun Afolayan, the collision between the two automobiles was caused by the slippery road caused by rain.

“We were opposite the MFM when we saw the accident,” he explained. I believe the tanker attempted to escape a truck that overtook it, but slipped due to the rain, causing it to tumble and collide with this towing vehicle. I believe the’motorboys’ of both vehicles were hurt and were taken to the hospital by road safety officers.


Another eyewitness, named as Oluwasegun, blamed the crash on speeding.

“The accident was caused by the speeding of a truck that overtook this tanker, causing it to wave in an attempt to avoid collision with the truck,” Oluwasegun explained. This caused it to fall and collide with the towing truck.”

When reached, Florence Okpe, Public Relations Officer, Ogun State Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps, stated that the rescue operation is still ongoing.

“The tanker took up about two lanes, leaving only one for motorists,” she explained. The Nigeria Police and FRSC operatives from Ibafo Outpost are on the ground monitoring the traffic issue. We are, however, waiting for firefighters and an empty tanker to arrive. The ship is full of AGO. We will keep you updated at all times.
