Emotions in the form of a fire on an oil tanker near the Governor of Ogun’s building
This may seem like a rather unexpected event: a truck caught fire in front of the governor’s building.
The truck, which was loaded with approximately 50,000 liters of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), caught fire on Saturday in front of the office of Governor Oke Mosan, Abeokuta, capital of Ogun state.
DAILY POST learned that the tanker had arrived from Forte Oil, Ijora and was heading to Mobile, Adatan, in the metropolis of Abeokuta.
The driver, Nurudin Yusuf, told reporters that he, along with his two fellow machinists, discovered a spark from the engine, which led to a fire.
As it became known to our correspondent, the passengers of the tanker were evacuated by firefighters stationed in Oka Mosan.
As it became known, when the truck caught fire, firefighters rushed to the scene to extinguish the fire, thereby avoiding what could turn into a disaster.
According to him, the fire chief at the scene, DSF Sodik Atanda, said that timely intervention by his men was required to put out the fire before he got to the bed of the truck, which could have been more devastating. …
“If it weren’t for the proximity of our station and the timely intervention of our people, the situation would have been even worse,” he said, wondering why there was no fire extinguisher in the truck.
