A 33,000 liters petrol tanker laden Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) has fallen over at the Festac Link bridge of Festac Town Amuwo Odofin Lagos state.

Eye Witness reports said that the petrol tanker fell over while trying to climb the link bridge and turned over with a large amount of Premium Motor Spirit gushing out. As usual, people have ignored the potential dangers and are seen scooping fuel from the fallen petrol tanker.

Motorist and other road users within that axis of the state has been warned to be very careful.

A similar accident at that same spot some years ago led to the destruction of properties worth millions of Naira. The fire that broke out as a result of the accident engulfed a nearby car dealer shop burning cars and destroying properties.

Yesterday, men of the Lagos state fires service, Ogun state fire service, and Federal fires service battled a raging inferno at the Kara link bridge between Ogun state and Lagos where a petrol tanker also fell over and burst into flames.

The explosion that follows resulted in the death of 2 persons and the destruction of vehicles along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway. Nigerians have been warned to always desist from the acts of trying to scoop fuel from fallen petrol tankers as they are endangering their lives.
