A deafening sound awoke residents of Owode Ijako, Ota, along Abeokuta Expressway this morning as a tanker carrying diesel exploded and caused serious fire incident around he area. People died, houses burnt, stalls destroyed and there’s serious traffic gridlock around the axis right now. Men of the Nigerian Police are however on ground to control the situation.
I was on ground myself to cover the sad situation. Please do not crucify me for taking pictures. Somehow, someone will have to report what happened. I am an eyewitness of the explosion.
