A tanker has exploded in flames following a crash in the Ogun State area of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway between Fidiwo bridge and Foursquare causing traffic.

The unregistered tanker reportedly exploded around 7:30am on Friday morning.

The Ogun State Federal Road Safety Corps spokesperson, Florence Okpe, confirmed the incident, adding that three persons were involved in the accident but no death or injury was recorded.

She said the accident involved an unregistered DAF tanker and another vehicle.
