    A fuel-laden tanker has exploded along the Otedola Bridge axis of Berger
    in Lagos with the blaze engulfing at least 30 other vehicles.
    The tanker was heading out of Lagos towards the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway when the crash occurred, causing panic and fear.
    Many people were feared trapped in their cars and killed in the blaze, 
    while many others sustained burns.
    The General Manager of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, Mr Adesina Tiamiyu, confirmed to Channels Television that rescue officials have been able to retrieve nine bodies from the scene of the fire so far.
    Eyewitnesses, however, said the death toll might be higher as many people 
    were trapped in their cars with rescue officials still working at the scene.
    The fuel-laden tanker lost control, fell over and exploded.

    “I saw the tanker reversing and before we could know it, the tanker fell down 
    and started burning,” a witness said a tricycle rider who was close to the tanker.
    He added that it took the grace of God for him to escape the fire 
    with his tricycle.
    As the fire spread, many drivers had to abandon their vehicles and flee as firefighters tried to battle the raging blaze.
    Traffic was stopped on both sides of the road as emergency officials 
    battled to put out the fire and attend to those affected.
    Although the fire has been put out by the officials, the road remains 
    closed with rescue officials still working on the scene.
