Amid the gradual easing of the coronavirus lockdown which began on Monday in Lagos, Ogun and FCT Abuja, another fully loaded petrol tanker fell early on Tuesday morning on the popular Otedola Bridge – inward Isheri/Kara Bridge areas, along the now busy Lagos–Ibadan expressway.
Following the development, fear has gripped many residents and passers-by as they are unsure of what may happen.
Some people are seen scooping fuel from the fallen tanker.
Immediately the incident happened, some youths, suspected hoodlums, touts and residents in the area came out in their numbers with various vessels to scoop the petrol oozing from the fallen tanker.
The cause of the accident could not be immediately ascertained.
Law enforcement officers and emergency officials have now arrived at the place to control the situation.
