A petrol-loaded tanker has exploded along Ajayi road, Ogba area in Lagos.

The incident, which was confirmed by Nairametrics’ staff, occurred on Tuesday morning, at Yerevan petrol station along Ajayi Road, Ogba.

When Nairametrics inquired from the owner of the filling station on what caused the explosion, he refused to talk to our analyst.

He said, “I can’t make any comment now because I am still trying to process what actually happened myself too.”

Men of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) have arrived at the location.

No casualty was reported, as the fire only affected the petrol tanker.

Meanwhile, some residents had allegedly taken the owner of the filling station to court, when they claimed such a facility is not meant to be in a residential area like Ogba.
