The Nigerian Police has confirmed that nine vehicles were burnt in an early morning fire incidence that occurred at the Ojo Military Barracks, Lagos.
Police say no life was lost in the fire, which started at midnight along Lagos-Badagry expressway.
When the fire was eventually put out by men of the Fire Service, nine vehicles, comprising four articulated vehicles, one truck and four mini buses were razed.
“No life was lost and there was no report that anyone was injured during the incident. It is worthy of note that no fuel tanker was in sight nor burnt as a result” Lagos Police PRO Chike Oti said in a statement made available to Bounce News.
“However, it must be mentioned that in the evening of the previous day, October 1, 2018, at about 1830hrs, a Fuel truck was seen at the point where the fire began, with its content leaking uncontrollably from the storage tank.
“As a result, the Fire Service was called to attend to the situation. They arrived shortly after and applied some foamy substances on the road. At the end of the exercise, both the Fuel truck and the Fire Service men left without problem.”
