Over 30 houses, shops razed in Ibadan petroleum tanker accident

The sad incident occurred yesterday afternoon Monday April 22nd in the Omitowoju area of Ibadan, in Oyo State. The fire started after a fully loaded petroleum tanker passing through a residential area fell off the road and spilled its 33, 000 litres of petrol.

Over 30 houses and and at least 30 shops in the area were burnt to ashes. The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) eventually put out the fire but couldn't say for sure if anyone was killed by the fire.

Trust Nija things I doubt they responded promptly if not so many houses and shops wouldn't have been affected. They should check well before they give final reports for survivors.

Everytime i read of stories like this, i feel so sore in my spirit and can't help but ask God to judge our leaders. Just few weeks ago, i lost a friend to the Benin tanker explosion, he was travelling to East for his younger brother's traditional marriage when the Young Shall Grow bus he boarded was involved in the inferno. A young, promising computer engineer, an honest, soft spoken young man. Just facebook Goodluck Uchechukwu Chidolue and see for yourselves, he just got married about 7 months ago. What in for heaven's sake is Nigerian government doing for it's citizens. Our roads are death traps. Inspite of the incessant tanker explosions, there seem to be no regulation in place concerning it. I just feel so sad. Thank God no life was lost this time. God help us.

how can an oil tanker be passing a residential street, DATS SO STUPID. They need to avoid some particular trucks on somestreets. It should be illegal.

Y is it dat whenever such accident occur we start blaming the government. That road was not meant for trailers. And people will also do double parking on a public road

Why wont we blame our government. Do we hear of tanker explosions in other countries like we do in Nigeria. There must be measures that ensure that they moved where and when they wont cause problems. We ain't ruling accidents out as far as road use is concerned but one time too many is unbearable.
