What FRSC Said After Another Tanker Accident On Lagos-Ibadan Expressway
So, another petrol tanker crashed on Lagos-Ibadan expressway on Sunday, spilling its content on the road.
This resulted in heavy vehicular traffic jam on that road.
This prompted the Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC to warn motorists travelling on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway to be cautious.
Mr Hyginus Omeje, the Lagos State Sector Commander of FRSC, told the newsmen that the accident occurred at 5:56 am on Sunday.
He said: “The vehicular movement on Lagos -Ibadan Expressway inward Ibadan is currently diverted at Opic to share the road with vehicles moving inward Lagos due to a crash involving a petrol tanker which split its content on the road.
“All emergency response agencies are on the ground. An empty tanker is also on the ground now for trans-loading of the product.”
According to him, the tanker loaded with the petroleum product lost control and rammed into another vehicle, injuring three people.
The FRSC boss said that the vehicles involved were a white Mack Tanker and white Iveco truck with Registration number LSR460XG and LND 818XN respectively.
He said that efforts were in place by the commission and other agencies to remove obstructions while advising the motorists to exercise patience along the corridor.
Mr Bisi Kazeem, the Corps’ Public Education Officer, also advised motorists to be cautious as another leaking tanker owned by MRS Oil has been reported at a Mobil Filling Station on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway outward Lagos State.
