The Lagos State Government has attributed the tanker explosion that occurred at Yerevan Filling Station earlier today to the spillage from the articulated truck, laden with 33,000 litres of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), popularly called petrol.
This was disclosed via the official Twitter handle of the state on Tuesday.
According to the government, the revelation was as a result of the investigations by the LASEMA Response Team.
It tweeted, “The inferno was quickly curtailed due to the prompt response of the Agency’s team in conjunction with the Lagos State Fire Team.
“The leaky valve which was the source of the inferno has been shut off, the inferno has been extinguished while blanketing of the truck and entire area is ongoing in order to avert any secondary incident.”
