The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency said it recovered a fallen tanker around Oregun area in Ikeja and warned residents to abstain from activities that would lead to incidents.
The incident, according to LASEMA Director-General, Dr. Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, in a statement issued by the agency’s head of public affairs, Nosa Okunbor, happened on Sunday night.
“LASEMA, in its several overnight operations, cleared several roads that would otherwise have been shut down by the traffic incidents.
“One of such incidents is the lone traffic accident that occurred at Kudirat Abiola Way, Oregun inward Ojota which resulted in an overturned oil tanker truck.
“Investigation revealed that the accident was as a result of overspeeding and recklessness on the part of the driver.
“He was descending the steep road which led to the tanker crossing the entire road in a tilted position and spilling its content on the road.
“Fortunately, there were no casualty or fatality involved. The entire area was quickly blanketed and cordoned off and the diesel was loaded into another truck,” he said. (Punch)
