Only three days after a petrol tanker burst into flames at Iyana-Ipaja destroying millions of properties, another petrol tanker inferno occurred at Idimu Bus Stop, Egbe Idimu Local Council Development Area, LCDA, Lagos in the early hours of Saturday destroying millions of properties.
According to a Vanguard report gathered from eyewitnesses, the incident occurred when two tankers loaded with diesel were in a race with each other and in the process one of the two tankers over-turned spilling its content on the road, bursting into fire.
The timely intervention of the Lagos State Fire Service prevented the situation from getting worse.
As at press time it could not be confirmed if there was any loss of lives as the inferno was still raging with fire fighters battling to put out the fire as 3 AM this morning.
However, the fire was eventually put out around 6 AM by men of the fire service.
The situation set the whole community into confusion as everyone ran for dear lives.
