The current fuel scarcity has seen Nigerians go to extreme lengths to get the highly sought after liquid.

According to reports, a tanker carrying petrol was involved in an accident this morning on a road located a few miles from the Reedemed Christian Church of God‘s Redemption Camp, located near Lagos Ibadan Express Way.

The accident led to petrol spilling on the road, and according to our reader’s account, people began to rush to scoop the spilled fuel from the ground. Policemen are said to have urged them to stop scooping the fuel but they refused.

There have been several cases of oil tanker explosions in the past, including a tanker explosion in Apapa last year.
