The Corps’ Route Commander, Florence Okpe said:
“A tanker with registration number LND-437 XC conveying PMS collided with a truck marked LRN-981 ZA around the Redeemed Christian Church of God’s youth center gate, Mowe, on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, blocking the entire carriageway into Lagos.
“The tanker has spilled its contents on the expressway and both trucks blocked the entire access road.
“The RCCG and Sagamu fire services have been contacted, as standard practice, before transloading and removal of the fuel tanker were embarked upon.
“Also, Julius Berger Plc has been contacted to open the blocked section around the area, where they are currently rehabilitating, to allow vehicles have access as the gridlock has spread towards Kara near Sagamu,” she said.
She urged all motorists to always abide with traffic and emergency agencies working to restore traffic on the road to alleviate the frustration of road users.
