People gather at the site where a tanker crashed and caused a large fuel fire in Lagos. The governor assured that clearing of the highway of damaged vehicles to establish normal traffic flow would continue throughout the night until the objective is achieved.

Speaking to one of the survival, Adewale Adesanya, told Vanguard that they never envisaged that the truck would experience any brake failure.

"Motorists are advised to avoid the scene of the inferno". "I thought it was a bomb and there was an explosion and fire everywhere, so I started running away".

LASEMA has confirmed that at least nine people were killed when a petrol tanker exploded on Otedola Bridge on Thursday, June 28, 2018.

The statement said fire, police and other authorities were on the scene amid efforts to clear the road of the destroyed vehicles.

The World Cup match 'both teams might want to lose'
Whoever wins the group could possibly face defending champion Germany or Neymar and Brazil in the quarterfinals. But a senior United Kingdom official said they could "make her aware" of the score "if needs be".

"As a government, we would not relent in putting measures in place to ensure safety of lives and property of all residents", said Lagos state government spokesman Kehinde Bamigbetan in an emailed statement.

It's unclear if any lives were lost.

He said this was necessary so as to open up the road for normal traffic. More than 50 vehicles, including five buses, were set ablaze after the truck lost control and spilled its contents on a busy motorway during rush hour.

"This is the worst we have experienced on this road".

Suleiman Yakubu, from the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), said the location - Otedola Bridge in the Berger area - was a downhill stretch which drivers often take at speed.
