Does it really matter if its metal?
To me run run run run run run run run is all i will say n do.
To run away is the best, because according to the fire triangle, heat is one of the elements required for combustion to take place.

Eyewitnesses reported the clamour for petrol resulted into a spark as some of the residents used metal containers to scoop the product.

This led to an explosion which killed several people at once.

At the scene, the police tried to contain the situation as the fire raged

Stop scooping fuel. It's criminal, it's dangerous.

A rich man can never scoop fuel it is always the poor ppl ... People are hungry ... though am Not supporting der action but don't blame them that much ...blame poverty

And blame bubu for making Nigerians pass through this poverty of a thing.

No one should come here and start blaming poverty...How can someone rush to scope fuel at such scene knowing fully aware that his life is at risk? some even went with metal containers..This act is just greediness and covetousness, same way they rush food and drinks at a party even though the have plenty at home..No wonder Nigerians have the lowest IQ in the world..

A petrol tanker explosion which happened today along the Calabar-Odukpani Highway in Odukpani local government area of Cross River State, has left many dead, according to reports..

It was gathered the petrol tanker fell while trying to negotiate the bend with residents rushing to the scene to scoop petrol.

Eyewitnesses reported the clamour for petrol resulted into a spark as some of the residents used metal containers to scoop the product.

This led to an explosion which killed several people at once.

At the scene, the police tried to contain the situation as the fire raged.

A majority of the victims sustained third degree injuries and are currently at the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital.

That road is too narrow and sloppy with no barriers and dangerous curves.
With smaller cars one have to be very careful, let alone tankers

APC is bad news
The same thing happened during PDP era at Okogbe in River State. So it was APC that asked people to scoop fuel from a fallen tanker? Too may stupid comments on NL, too many kids.

If we live a life blaming others for our predicament, we won't improve. Cuz one will feel there is nothing to improve on. Moreover, someone/something else was blamed.

Lets call a spade a spade. This was not an act of poverty. This is the Nigerian greedy nature.
It's well

I need a legal/professional advice on a case

A cash in a friend bank account was withheld by bank.

He got to know about this when he decide to send some cash via his mobile banking app while his account balance showing minus/negative

His lawyer wrote a several letters to the bank about the incident which the bank ignored

His lawyer decide to sued the bank,then bank came with police/court order that was used to withheld the cash.

Which stated that my friend obtained money under false pretence.

The judge adjourned the case and instructed my friend lawyer to write an invitation letter to police,to bring whoever that makes a complained about my friend account to the court

The question is this,did police has right to arrest my friend on,before or after the case? Now that the case is in court of law...

Thank you...

Tanker fell and some idiots were running to scoop fuel.

I don't blame them though, I blame poverty and illiteracy and stupidity.

some people will never learn from other people's mistakes,
imagine people still rushing to scoop petroleum products from an accident scene despite hearing how it ends with others that did. R.I.P to the dead

Your friend sued cos of his account, abi?
Doesn't stop the police from arresting him for obtaining by false pretences.

They can still arrest him even if this matter is in court.

Assuming the police already arrested him with regards to obtaining by false pretences and in the course of arrest or detention, his rights were infringed upon, he could have sued the police.

He's suing for civil action, police matter is criminal action. They don't stop one another.

Your friend did the wrong thing. Since the police had a court order to freeze his account, he should have gone to the police and sorted it out. It's a small matter but he has complicated it.

Lastly, it's not your friend, it is you.

It's so sad that people are so ignorant. The police officers did their best to prevent the raging crowd from scooping the fuel. The transporters were trying to transload the fuel. Nobody could tell if it was a phone call or the hot weather that caused the explosion. I passed the scene of the accident immediately it happened. I saw the driver in tears and pain sitting on the road after odupkani federal housing estate.i saw the police and road safety trying to render assistant to the driver. There were about three guys with kegs busy scooping fuel, the policemen warned them to stop but they refused. The place became rowdy with more youths and women hustling to get their share of the spilled fuel. As I type no fire fighter tank has come to put out the fire.
If another tanker falls tomorrow in that same area people would still go and scoop fuel. We never learn in this country. Standard of living and reasoning is almost below zero. Hell on earth was the case of those that got burnt today. I commiserate with the management of fynfield and rainoil company

Scoop fuel after several warnings against the act.

To me this is pure act of suicide.
