Tanker Loaded With Petrol Falls & Spills Content In Lagos; Apapa Residents Raise Alarm

Some residents of Berger Suya bus stop, Olodi Apapa, Lagos, yesterday cried out for help from the government after another petrol tanker fell and spilled its content.

According to reports, this will be the third incident in recent times.

According to the residents in the area, the spilled contents flow into the road and gutters, risking an explosion.

A resident said a day before the tragic Otedola bridge tanker explosion occurred, a tanker loaded with petrol fell at the same spot at Berger bus stop in Olodi Apapa and two days later another with diesel fell.

Concerned residents have raised alarm about the warning signs the government has turned a blind eye to. They fear lives and properties could be lost if action is not taken soon.

We hope the relevant agencies of government will do the needful.
