Lagos Ibadan tanker explosion

An early morning tanker explosion, Tuesday, claimed the lives of two persons, while 13 vehicles were burnt at Ogere – Remo axis of the Lagos -Ibadan expressway.

The fire outbreak, which occurred at the proposed new Kara market in Ogere Remo in the Ogun State corridor of the expressway, resulted in traffic gridlock along the corridor, thereby, compelling traffic management authorities to divert vehicular movements in and outbound Lagos.

It was gathered that a fully loaded 40-foot truck, which content could not be ascertained, had earlier around 4 am, fallen along the expressway, causing gridlock, as it narrowed the road.
