VIDEOS + PHOTOS: Over 10 cars in flame as Petrol tanker falls off Otedola bridge


Tragedy has struck in Lagos as a fuel-laden petrol tanker conveying over 33,000 litres of Premium Motor Spirit lost control on the popular Otedola Bridge on Lagos –Ibadan Expressway and exploded, killing scores of victims.
Over 10 other vehicles with their occupants were caught in the fire that is raging with thick smoke.
As at the time of filing this report, the total number of vehicles caught in the huge inferno was yet to be ascertained just as the number occupants in them.

But New Telegraph gathered that many of the victims are those travelling outside the state and people returning home after the hectic day work. Efforts are currently on going to contain the raging fire while all the emergency responders are on the ground to manage the huge disaster scene.
Remains of the victims are being extricated from the burnt vehicles while those who sustain severe injuries are being rushed to the nearby hospitals. Nobody could identify any of the possible victims of the ever-busy highway.
Trucks of water are being deployed to the scene of the fire.
Detail coming later…..
