It was such a piece of devastating news for us here at Naijauto.com on getting the latest updates of a fire accident that occurred in Ibadan recently.
On the 18th of April 2019, at around 2:00 pm along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, a tanker suddenly caught fire along the Iwo road on the axis of the Old Ife way.
This tanker was reportedly carrying a full tank of petrol fuel which caused a massive fire explosion at the moment the tanker fell to the ground.
According to the reports reaching us, the accident happened as a result of the petrol tanker suffering a brake failure. The explosion, however, was even induced by some greedy individuals that actually attempted scooping petrol fuel from the fallen tanker moments after it fell to the ground and started leaking.
It is also reported that several properties including houses and cars belonging to residents of the area got damaged in the fire. This accident also had also taken some lives already and the total dead body count is yet to be accounted for.
