The busy Lagos-Ibadan expressway experienced an unprecedented disaster this evening as a tanker explosion burnt beyond recognition over 20 vehicles counted by the Proshare WebTV field team, claiming several lives.
This occurred around 4.30pm adjacent to the Otedola Estate gate in the Lagos not too far from the Capital filling station.
As at press time a massive traffic logjam was witnessed for all those coming into Lagos State from the Ibadan axis.
Currently, there is a diversion for all those leaving Lagos and this will cause traffic gridlock for some hours.
A combined team of the Lagos State Fire Brigade, Lagos State Rescue Service, Police Command, the Federal Road Safety Commission, Lagos State Traffic Management Agency are on the ground to tackle the situation.
More updates to come on this development.
