Why would about 16 vehicles be cramped into a fuel station at the same time? This multiple accident is one of the several effects of the lingering fuel scarcity across Nigeria.

It happened in Enugu on Saturday at about 5.30p.m at the NNPC Mega Filling Station located at Naira Triangle axis.

The Enugu State Police Command said it has started full scale investigation into the circumstances that led to the incident.

The good news, however, is that no life was lost, according to the Command’s spokesman, SP Ebere Amaraizu, who confirmed the incident in a statement issued in Enugu on Saturday.

“The incident was allegedly caused by a truck loaded with cement that had lost control and rammed into vehicles on the filling station queue waiting for their turn to get fuel.

“The prompt intervention by police personnel from New Haven Police Division saved what would have resulted into some aggrieved members of the public taking laws into their hands.

“The damaged vehicles are being removed for free flow of traffic and to avoid any other incident,” he said.
