Chemical Tanker Explodes At Sangotedo Area, Lekki-Epe Expressway, Lagos by ojesymsym: 8:46am On May 18, 2012
An eye witness has confirmed to me that there was an explosion along Lekki-Epe express road, after Ajah lagos that there was an explosion this morning (18-05-2012). The informations emanating from there are still sketchy, he does not think it was a bomb anyway.

The coincidence and proximity is getting too close for comfort.

Sad news coming from the Sangotedo area of the Lekki-Epe Expressway Lagos this morning.

A tanker has exploded burning cars and people. It was reportedly conveying cylinders with chemicals. The fire service appears to have been prompt on the scene but number of casualties not yet confirmed as traffic remains in a standstill.

It's really not an explosion but a case of fire disaster probably from a fuel tanker. It was under control by fire-fighters by the time I pass there. About 5km from Ajah is the location.

Why the scare tactics?

Tankers have been exploding in Nigeria since the beginning of time. This isn't news worthy, it will just make people live in fear..

It seems BH has taken over the lives of Nigerians. sad

I saw it today it was a terrible accident. God have mercy on that Lekki-Epe route because there was another accident involving a Nissan Jeep and a Mac truck this afternoon around Abijo.

I was on that route yesterday when somebody facebooked it, although Sangotedo is before Ajah. Eeyah, Sangotedo is my regular route too. It's a pity.

What kind of "Chemicals" are we referring to, here?
For it to suddenly explode.....and the weather is not very hot, in the preceding few days!

Does anyone has "info" on how and why it suddenly exploded....even when it was inside drums!
Or was Baba Ayo using the Drums to convey Petrol?

So many questions, no answer! angry

Lastpage!

One of the reasons l have this phobia of driving beside or anywhere close to these Tankers!
