An explosion occured today from a fuel-laden tanker beside Ojo Barracks bus stop along Lagos-Badagry Expressway, reported earlier.
According to a report by Vanguard, the tanker fell as a result of the terrible state of the road and spilled its contents, resulting in the burning of no fewer than eight other vehicles plying the road at the same time.
Many commuters reportedly escaped the inferno by jumping out of their vehicles and it is unclear at the time of filing this report if there are any fatalities.
