This accident will most likely contribute to the traffic caused by the partial closure of some parts of Lagos-Ibadan Expressway inward Lagos.

It's a Friday, there's already restricted traffic on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. Now there's report of a petroleum products taker which has spilled fuel on the Otedola Bridge.
Find an alternative route if you had plans of going anywhere around there. Better still, change plans. pic.twitter.com/JT5fBzkqRw

Who get to check the Tankers conditions before getting on the Road🤷♂️

Pending the time of the road construction, I suggest that tankers shouldn't ply that road with us.
