It was gathered that first responders have since arrived at the scene and cordoned off the site to prevent a secondary occurrence.
One of the tankers carrying diesel has been recovered but efforts are on to remove the one carrying petrol, Lagos Information Commissioner, Gbenga Omotoso, said in a statement.

He added, “As a result of this, the section of the road leading to Mowe from New Garage (Ojodu – Berger) has been cordoned off to prevent a secondary accident while contraflow is in place to reduce delays.
