Barely two weeks after a fuel laden taker caused an inferno that destroyed several lives and property in Onitsha, another fuel tanker on Thursday fell in Onitsha, Anambra State.

A source said the tanker loaded with fuel fell around 1pm on the Onitsha/Enugu Expressway. An eyewitness said the content of the tanker was spilling, making residents scamper for safety.

The Anambra State Police Command confirmed the incident. In a statement by the Police Public Relations Officer, Haruna Mohammed, the command said commuters had been advised to use other routes.

The statement in part said,” A tanker loaded with PMS just fell into a ditch along Onitsha/Enugu Expressway by Chipex Filling station.

“The PMS is spilling out at the time of making this report. It is highly advisable you alert residents in the Area through your medium to stay clear from the area in order to prevent any disaster.
