Petrol Tanker falls, spills content in Ogun Statedkmngr September 15, 2018 0 COMMENTS
A new report coming to us has confirmed that a petrol tanker has fallen and spilled its content earlier today in Ogun State.
The petrol tanker laden with 33,000 litres of petrol fell along Iwoye-Ilogbo Road, in Iju-Atan-Ilogbo Local Council Development Area of Ogun State.
The petrol tanker which bore the name of a popular oil company allegedly fell, due to the bad condition of the road.
Operatives of traffic agencies, Ogun State Traffic Compliance, and Enforcement Corps and the Federal Road Safety Corps and policemen were seen at the scene of the accident to forestall any disaster.
They prevented residents from coming near the scene to scoop fuel. Vehicles and motorcycles also could not pass through the road.
This is happening less than 24 hours after a tanker also spilled some of its content on an axis of the Ketu Kosofe road coming from Ikorodu, which saw the road temporarily shut.
The service went further to tweet;
“Tanker fell at NNPC filling station Kosfose Ketu. Traffic inbound from Ikorodu is shut down as emergency units are on ground and in charge.”
