One person has died and several vehicles burnt after a fuel-laden tanker exploded in Abeokuta in Ogun State.
The incident occurred around 8:15 am on Tuesday on the Presidential Boulevard around Guaranty Trust Bank opposite Lawson Group School, Kuto, Abeokuta.
Eyewitnesses said a tanker which was coming from Sagamu-Siun-Oke-Mosan Road climbed the overhead bridge but suddenly lost control while descending from the bridge.
The tanker hit a motorcycle that was in motion and then rammed into some commercial vehicles stationed at the tail end of the bridge awaiting passengers. Shortly after it rammed into the vehicles, it exploded.
