An explosion from a truck loaded with 33,000 litres of petroleum, rocked Ojo area of Lagos State, on Wednesday, with a yet to be ascertained number of persons feared dead in the resultant fire.
Several vehicles were reportedly also burnt in the inferno.
The truck which was conveying the combustive product to an undisclosed petrol station, along the Mile 2/Badagry Expressway, fell, on reaching the Barracks Bus Stop.
The incident was said to have been caused by a failed section of the road.
Residents who spoke, said that this was not the first time trucks would fall at the bad spot. A similar incident which left passengers stranded for hours along that route, occurred about three weeks ago.
