Okada rider gets trapped as motorcycle crashes into petrol tanker in Lagos
A commercial motorcycle rider in Lagos on Tuesday got trapped after a petrol tanker fell and spilled its contents on the Apapa-Oshodi Expressway.
“An adult male motorcyclist is however trapped beneath the tanker as efforts are ongoing to recover him,” the director of Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service, Margaret Adeseye, said in a statement.
Ms Adeseye added that the 33,000-litre tanker had “lost control while on motion and fell on its side, thereby spilling its contents at Alaba Express Bus-stop, Apapa Oshodi Expressway, Amuwo Odofin, Lagos.”
“The incident is being mitigated by the Ajegunle Fire Crew of the Agency and has it under control with no palpable cause for alarm,” she added.
