A major fire outbreak was on Tuesday morning averted in the Ikotun area of Lagos State when a tanker laden with petroleum product got stuck.
THE WHISTLER gathered that the tanker got stuck around Synagogue Church, Oju-Odo in Ikotun area. This caused traffic gridlock around the area.
It took the intervention of the operatives of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) to avert what could have been a major fire disaster.
Upon arriving at the scene, LASTMA operatives called other emergency responders and prevented miscreants and hoodlums from tampering with the petroleum product before the arrival of Police men from Ikotun Police Division.
