Seven Killed Following Petrol Tanker Explosion In Nigeria by mxhabib2001: 3:10am On Jun 19, 2021
Seven people were killed following a petrol tanker explosion in Nigeria’s southwestern state of Ogun on Wednesday, local authorities said.
Two others sustained varying degrees of injuries in the incident at Ajilete, a town in the southwestern state on Wednesday morning, said Akinwunmi Olaluwoye, head of the Federal Road Safety Corps in Ogun.
Olaluwoye told reporters at the scene of the accident that a bus suspected of overspeeding rammed into the tanker laden with petroleum products while it was ascending the sloppy road.
“The tanker exploded immediately and caused the disaster,” he said, adding local police are already carrying out a post-incident assessment.
Deadly road accidents are frequently reported in Nigeria, often caused by overloading, bad condition of roads, and reckless driving.
