Petroleum Tanker Incident
A Tanker heavily laden with premium motor spirit otherwise known as “fuel” has tumbled along Awka-Onitsha Expressway, Umuokpu and effusively emitting liquid.
The 33000′ litre Tanker we learnt lost control and fell down early hours of today, Monday 31st December, 2018.
Sadly, some ignorant citizens are trying to convert the unfortunate incident to their “benefits” by scooping the “fuel” gushing out of the Tanker.
We want to use this medium to warn the people that, it is extremely dangerous to scoop any inflammable substance more so PMS. It is risky and could lead to death. People are hereby advised to vacate the scene of this life threatening incident and go home.
As expected the men of the Anambra State Fire Service are already on ground to forestall any eventuality.
Arrangements are equally underway to tow-off the Truck out of the road as it’s a major threat to the lives and property of people living around the area.
Life is precious, let’s preserve it.
