It was panic that gripped people on Wednesday as two fuel-laden tankers crashed into each other at the Sagamu interchange end of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

It was gathered that the tankers collided around 5.30pm and the impact led to an explosion.

According to Punch Metro, it was learnt that one of the tankers was rolling backwards after suffering a mechanical fault when the other rammed into it from the rear.

It was gathered that no life was lost but the two tankers got burnt.

Men of the fire service of the Redeemed Christian Church of God and the Ogun State Fire Service attended to the inferno.

Confirming the accident, the Sector Commander, Ogun State, Federal Road Safety Corps, Clement Oladele, said traffic had been diverted to avoid a secondary crash.

He stated, “Two tankers conveying petroleum products crashed into each other on the outward lane of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway under the Sagamu Interchange Bridge. The white tanker in the front developed a mechanical fault and in the process of rolling back, the one coming from the rear collided with it.

“The fire service of the RCCG and the Ogun State Fire Service attended to the fire and we made a necessary diversion to prevent a secondary crash.”
