The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has advised residents on what to do after a tanker conveying 45,000 litres of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), also known as petrol, crashed on Saturday, spilling its content at Community Road, Ijegun-Imore by Navy Town, Lagos, causing panic among residents.

Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, Acting Zonal Coordinator, South West Zonal Office, NEMA, confirmed the development to NAN in Lagos.

Farinloye advised residents of Ijegun-Imore to ‘avoid getting close to the scene of the incident.’

He said the area had been cordoned off by emergency response agencies and the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) from Abule Ado to prevent any fire outbreak.

According to him, five trucks are also on standby until normalcy is restored.

The incident occurred barely two days after a truck carrying Liquefied Petroleum Gas exploded at Mobolaji Bank Anthony Way, Ikeja, Lagos, killing five people and injuring eleven others.

No fewer than 25 cars were also damaged in the explosion, which destroyed a part of the Ogun State Property Investment Company (OPIC) Plaza, housing several commercial entities.
