GistNaij gathered that fire fighters arrived at the scene later but did not have enough water to quench the fire.

An eyewitness , Mr. Olufemi Popoola said the tanker, coming from Apple Junction and going to FESTAC Town, was ascending the bridge when it suddenly rolled back and fell.

The impact of the fall separated the tank from the truck’s body, resulting in an explosion.
” Some residents and passers-by attacked the fire with buckets of water to no avail.

“The fire then spilled into a car shop on the foot of the bridge, burning some of the cars, while the attendants quickly drove out some.
“Furniture items, bags and boxes displayed for sale on the foot of the bridge were all burnt.”
