Another tanker ladened with petrol on Saturday morning exploded on the popular Otedola Bridge in Lagos State.
As of the time of this report, the fatality had yet to be ascertained.
Confirming the report, the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) said it had responded to distress calls concerning the explosion.
“The Agency has responded to distress calls concerning a tanker on fire at Berger along the Lagos Ibadan Expressway. Updates to follow,” it tweeted.
In 2018, an explosion involving a fuel tanker on the bridge left many dead and a massive destruction in its wake.
Another tanker loaded with 33,000 litres of petrol got burnt on the Otedola Bridge in 2019 but no casualty or injury was recorded.
In May 2020, two tankers laden with Kerosene and Diesel respectively, had a head-on collision at the bridge but an explosion was averted.
