A tanker loaded with 33,000 litres of PMS has fallen at Alaba Express along the Oshodi-Apapa expressway after losing control, killing one person.
According to Federal Road Safety Corps Public Education Officer, Route Commander Olabisi Sonusi, in a statement on Tuesday night, said a motorcyclist who got trapped under the fallen loaded tanker, was killed and his remains has been retrieved.
However, the content of the tanker is safe as officials of the Lagos State Fire Service have prevented it from engulfing in flames while the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) was making a frantic effort to recover the tanker off the road.
In order to prevent a fire disaster, officials of FRSC, Nigeria Police, and LASTMA have cordoned off the entire axis while ensuring that traffic flow is maintained until the total recovery of the tanker is carried out.
Meanwhile, motorists are, therefore, advised to obey the traffic management agencies or seek alternative routes.
