One person died on Sunday, and another was rescued from a fallen tanker at Otto Wharf Bus Stop on Apapa-Oshodi Expressway in Lagos.

Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service Director, Margaret Adeseye confirmed the incident to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

The accident, involving a 45,000-litre tanker loaded with diesel, happened at about 4:02 a.m.

The tanker heading towards Oshodi from Apapa fell on a stationed towing van while negotiating its way out of barriers erected by toll collectors on Apapa road.

“The resultant accident was mitigated by the Sari-Iganmu fire crew of the service”, Adeseye said.

One man rescued alive with varying degrees of injury was taken to the nearest hospital, and the other recovered dead.

The director added that the tanker and towing van had been evacuated from the road.
