A correspondent of Sahara Reporters, who was at the scene, also learnt that at least five vehicles were caught in the fire. The explosion occurred on Wednesday evening at the Shagari Village junction along the Ilesa/ Owo Federal Highway. The accident allegedly occurred after the tanker swerved off the road and emptied its content. Some eyewitnesses blamed the accident on the impatience of the tanker driver. One of the eyewitness that spoke with us said; “The fire incident was caused by an articulated petrol tanker coming from the Lagos road, which lost control. Many people driving from the other side of the junction were all trapped as the petrol tanker immediately went up in flames. “Although, we don’t know the figure of those involved, but I am very sure that the occupants of a Toyota car that hit the petrol tanker have been burnt to ashes.” See Photos Below: READ ALSO Kaduna fire service trains ICPC, EFCC staffs in fire prevention Subscribe To ANE Talk Trends On Youtube Subscribe To All Naija Entertainment On Youtube Get More Stories Like This On: Facebook: @AllNaijaEntertainment, Twitter: @AllNaijaEntertainment Quick Reach: Our Service Improvement, Advertise With Us, Send Us Enquiries & Press Releases Related Posts:DWAYNE JOHNSON: Complete Biography, History, Family, State Of Origin, Birth And Throwback Photos Of Dwayne JohnsonLAURENCE ANINI: Full Throwback History And Biography Of Nigeria Number One Terrorist Laurence AniniDAGRIN: Complete History, Biography, Family, State Of Origin, Birth And Throwback Photos Of Olaonipekun Oladapo Olaitan (Dagrin)New Zealand: Many killed in ‘terrorist’ attack on mosques in Christchurch [VIDEO]How To Become A Succesful Good Fashion Designer, Tailor, Sell Materials, Tools in NigeriaOver 50 persons reported missing over pipeline explosion in Bayelsa5 Killed As Two Cult Groups ClashThugs attack traders, beat, destroy shops in Lagos marketLady Crushed By Truck During Rescue Operation In OgunStray bullet kills 18-yr-old girl in Lagos AkurefireOndotanker Advertisement Click to comment Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
