LOKOJA – A petrol tanker in the early hour of Friday lost control and ran off -road, into many houses in Iffe, Ijumu Local Government Area of Kogi State, destroying nothing less than ten houses at a go.

The accident also resulted in the death of two persons, one Segun Bello who is a primary school teacher, and a yet to be identified person.

A source from the community said the petrol tanker’s driver who was driving at high speed overtook a small passenger vehicle and in the process diverted away from the main road, collapsed into some residential buildings along the road and burst into flame.

The split fuel from the petrol tanker was said to have aided in spreading the raging fire that also consumed many of the buildings aside those brought down by the tanker itself.

The teacher, Segun Bello, who died in the raging inferno in an attempt to run out of the destroyed building unfortunately jumped into the raging fire already spreading outside house, the source said.

Many other persons were said to have also been injured from the collapsed building and the fire from the petrol tanker.
For hours, the Iffe – Kabba road, which is a link between the south – west and Lokoja the Kogi State capital was sealed off as a result of heavy gridlocked caused by the accident.It took spirited efforts from the communities to subdue the fire and a lot of efforts from the officers of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, to ensure the road become passable again.
