9 bodies recovered as Lagos State Government releases statement on tanker explosion

Just opposite the scene of Thursday's Lagos tanker fire accident, another auto accident occurred on Friday, involving a yellow and black painted commercial bus and a white bus.

The survivor said he never envisaged that the fuel tanker which caused the fire would experience any brake failure.

He expressed his deepest condolences to the government and people of Lagos on this tragedy. "Our thoughts and prayers are with them in this time of pain and grief", the statement read.

Oladejo in an interview with Vanguard, described the accident as tragedic considering the lives lost and enormous property lost to the disaster.

The tanker was heading out of Lagos towards the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway when the crash occurred, engulfing at least 50 vehicles, leaving nine persons dead and four others injured.
