A petrol loaded tanker has flipped in a multi-vehicle accident on Otedola Bridge, Lagos.

Dr Olufemi Damilola, the Permanent Secretary of the Lagos State Emergency Management Authority (LASEMA), verified the tragedy in a statement acquired on Friday.

“On arrival of the Agency’s tiger team at the incident scene, it was observed that multiple accidents involving a tanker with unknown registration number conveying about 45 thousand litres of petrol and four vehicles had occurred.

“A joint team of Lagos State Fire Service, Agency fire team, and Nigeria Police worked to manage the flames and the resultant traffic backlogs using chemical foam.

“The other affected cars were recovered by the Agency’s light-duty equipment.

“The entire area has been blanketed with a chemical retardant to prevent secondary incidents. Members of the public are to refrain from illegal scooping of products to prevent any additional outbreak and to avoid igniting naked flame or fire.

“The operation has been concluded and the carriageway is open for traffic", the statement reads.
