At least 30 vehicles were burnt in a multiple accident on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway early Saturday morning.
The inferno happened at about midnight when a tanker lost control, fell and exploded in the middle of the road.
The incident happened just after the Long Bridge where there is both a car park and car sales stand.
Many vehicles were razed in the inferno.
Motorists on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway are locked in a gridlock following the tanker accident.
Officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps are on the ground trying to evacuate the totally burnt tanker blocking the road.
