Motorists and other passerby along Isolo road in the Mushin axis of Lagos were stunned after the area was cordoned off by emergency services yesterday, April 21, 2017.
The development was as a result of a loaded petrol tanker that developed a fault on the major road.
The road was however closed briefly by the Emergency Response Team of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) to avert any tragedy.
InsideMainland gathered that the rescue officers of the agency ensured the loaded tanker was removed before opening the road to motorists.
