Shops Destroyed As Fuel Tanker Fell, Spills Its Contents Resulting In An Inferno

There was a massive inferno after a fuel tanker fell and spilled its contents in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, on Monday morning.

It was gathered that the incident resulted in an inferno which consumed shops around the neighbourhood.

According to an eyewitness account, the fully-loaded petrol tanker fell on its side, spilling its contents, causing what they described as a ‘massive inferno’ around 7am.

t took firefighters from the state fire service and other organisations to stop the inferno from doing more damage.

Policemen and men of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) also had to mobilise to the scene to restore public order and manage traffic flow.

Up until 11 am, when our correspondent got to the scene, traffic could use only one side of the roundabout as the burnt tanker still covered the other side of the roundabout.
