Another tanker laden with fuel exploded on Thursday morning on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
The explosion, which occurred at Araromi Town before the Interchange, is causing traffic gridlock.
Some motorists close to the scene, it was learnt, have scampered to safety.
According to the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) Ogun Sector Command, efforts are on to bring the situation under control.
FRSC advised motorists to make use of alternative routes to avoid unnecessary delay.
“The rescue operation is still on and people involved yet to be confirm because a bus is also involved.
