Fuel Tanker explodes on Otedola bridge

Written by anitaadims

A petrol tanker has exploded catching fire earlier today at the Otedola Bridge around the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

There is no report of casualty as at the time of filing this report.

According to multiple online reports, first responders have arrived at the scene and have curtailed the fire.

Road users are advised to avoid the corridor as the incident has caused gridlock with motorists stranded around the axis.

Friday’s incident occurred days after the Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps, Lagos State Command, Olusegun Ogungbemide, said that there are no demon, witch or wizard at the Otedola Bridge but reckless drivers and expired trucks were responsible for the incessant crashes around the bridge.

The Otedola Bridge is notorious for road crashes mostly involving fuel-laden tankers and trucks that often explode, resulting in inferno, burnt vehicles, loss of lives and properties.
