The Nigerian Police, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), and the Lagos Neighbourhood Service Corps on Wednesday helped to prevent another fuel tanker from exploding into flames at the Iyana-ipaja area of Lagos state.
The 33,000-PMS carrier was spilling its content at Moshalashi Bus Stop but a swift response from emergency service stopped the tanker from exploding.
According to a witness, the leaking tanker was spotted by policemen monitoring traffic at Moshalashi, who then alerted LASEMA and other emergency service teams.
Routes leading to the scene of the spill have since been cordoned off, with traffic diverted to other routes.
Last week Thursday June 28, a fuel tanker exploded into flames and claimed the lives of 12 persons and burnt 54 cars on Otedola Bridge inward Berger, Lagos-ibadan expressway.
