A massive fire explosion from gas and a petrol tanker has occurred on Kara Bridge by Berger in Ogun state on Saturday night.
The driver of the gas tanker who has been identified as a Yusuf Tiamiyu, told the BBC pidgin correspondent that he was waiting for the curfew to be over when his tanker was hit by a petrol tanker which had a brake failure.
The Kara bridge is the main access route linking Ogun state to Lagos State from the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway., Southwest Nigeria.
An eye witness said the explosion which was as long as nearly 100 metres on the bridge can be seen from nearly a mile from the scene of the fire explosion.
