Fuel tanker fire razes 10 buildings in Ogun

By Fabian Ekeruche, Lagos.

 

Not less than 10 buildings were razed by fire when a tanker laden with 45,000 litres of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) crashed on Saturday, spilling its content at Ifo in Ogun.

 

A statement issued in Lagos by Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, Zonal Coordinator, South West, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), said that the incident occurred at about 7.00 a.m. on Olambe Matogun Road, Ifo.

 

Farinloye said: “Though, no life was lost or anyone sustained injury, about 10 buildings were consumed in the incident.

 

“The situation was mitigated, with most of the content spilling into the canal close to the scene.

 

“This saved the community from serious incident that could have affected more people.”

 

The NEMA official, however, said the fire had been extinguished.
