One person was feared dead while scores of vehicles got burnt in a tanker explosion that occurred in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
The incident occurred around 8:15 am on Tuesday on the Presidential Boulevard Road around Guarantee Trust Bank opposite Lawson Group School, Kuto, Abeokuta..
The explosion, which reportedly involved a 33,000-fuel laden tanker, happened due to a break failure.
Our correspondent, who was at the motor park close to the scene observed that the tanker which was coming from Sagamu-Siun-Oke-Mosan Road climbed the overhead bridge but suddenly lost control while descending from the bridge .
The tanker hit a motorcycle which was in motion and rammed into some commercial vehicles waiting for passengers at the end of the bridge.
Shortly after it rammed into the scores of the vehicles, it exploded.
The fire which spread to a few offices around the place caused panic as many motorists started making reverse to avoid being caught up in the explosion.
There was anxiety over the fate of some pupils who were in the vehicles around the place and in the school premises opposite the scene of explosion.
As of the time of filing this report, some officials of the Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps were seen at the scene controlling the traffic.
Officials of the fire services were still being expected at the scene.
