A petrol-laden tanker exploded early this morning at the Ogere end of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway, causing heavy gridlock.
It was gathered that the tanker ignited a similar tanker caught within that traffic.
It was learnt that no fewer than seven trucks and three cars were burnt into ashes.
At the time of filing this report, efforts are on by the men of the Fire Service to contain the raging fire.
Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), has urged motorists to ply alternative routes.
TRACE advised that vehicles travelling inbound Lagos should go through Saapade-Ode/Remo-Iperu-Sagamu to relink Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
While vehicles moving inbound Ibadan should also go through Sagamu-Iperu-Ode/Remo-Saapade to relink the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
The agency implored drivers to maintain lane discipline, so as not to worsen the traffic situation.Follow us on social media
