Despite knowing the danger involved, residents were seen rushing with their gallons and buckets to scoop fuel from a fallen tanker in Biase local government area of Cross River state. Moments after the tanker crashed and landed into a ditch, the residents were notified as they rushed to the scene to scoop fuel.

This is coming after the fuel tanker explosion which happened on Thursday on Otedola bridge along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway where at least 9 people were killed and over 50 vehicles burnt. A tanker which was loaded with PMS, had a brake failure while trying to overtake a vehicle before crashing and exploding in the process.

Unfortunately 9 bodies were confirmed dead and recovered from the scene (8 adults and 1 minor) and a total number of 54 vehicles were completely burnt as a result of the inferno.

The number of people scooping is not encouraging at all. More people should have trooped in their thousands to scoop as much as they can so the tanker can be emptied in due time instead of being left to leak on the floor and go to waste by being dried up by the scorching sun.

And if there is an explosion, aren't we going to have much casualties from your suggestion?

That can never happen. People from that side are more careful, calculative and cautious than their Lagos-Ibadan counterpart in the west.

See the kinda compatriot you threw me to live with in Nigeria.

What is my sin O lord to deserve this?

SEASON OF FUEL TANKER crashes like season of Nigeria love films where you will be hearing : love catches rat, Rats catch love, love going up, live going down.

Let all the drivers in Nigeria be subjected to drug test and their motors and cars to be certified before they will finish us like FULANI HERDSMEN.

Like some folks have recently been recruited to move bad news from Cross River to FP.

But that their governor not try, everything na wash; insecurity, cultism on the rise, even among his government. But yet, "Ayade is working". undecided
