Video - One feared dead, cars burnt as tanker explodes in Ogun

One person was feared dead while scores of vehicles got burnt in a tanker explosion that occurred in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

The incident occurred around 8:15 am on Tuesday on the Presidential Boulevard around Guarantee Trust Bank opposite Lawson Group School, Kuto, Abeokuta. The explosion, which reportedly involved a 33,000 fuel-laden tanker, happened due to a brakes failure.

Our correspondent, who was at the motor park close to the scene observed that the tanker which was coming from Sagamu-Siun-Oke-Mosan Road climbed the overhead bridge but suddenly lost control while descending from the bridge.

The tanker hit a motorcycle that was in motion and then rammed into some commercial vehicles stationed at the tail end of the bridge awaiting passengers.

Shortly after it rammed into the vehicles, it exploded.

The fire which spread to a few offices around the place caused panic as many motorists made u-turns to avoid being caught up in the explosion.

The unfortunate fire incident has been put under control with combined efforts of men of the Federal and Ogun State Fire Service alongside sister agencies.
