Several vehicles were reportedly burnt on Wednesday afternoon after a tanker exploded in the Festac axis of Lagos state.
According to eyewitnesses, the vehicles gutted fire as the tanker, said to be laden with petrol, backtracked and fell after it attempted to climb the Festac Link Bridge in Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area of the state.
Officials of the Lagos State Fire Service were said to have arrived at the scene on time but could not quench the inferno completely after their arrival.
