According to a report by The PUNCH, a petrol tanker has exploded at the Iyaganku area of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, causing some stir in the area.



It was gathered that the fuel-laden tanker fell close to a petrol station on Friday, thereby causing panic among road users and residents of the area.

The fallen tanker was said to have eventually exploded but some okada riders told our correspondent that there were no casualties.

Roads leading to the scene of the explosion were said to have been cordoned off causing gridlock along the Dugbe, Ring Road, and Iyaganku areas in the state capital.
