See pictures of Lagosians scooping diesel from fallen tanker
Lagosians were spotted scooping diesel from nearby gutters as a tanker fell in Victoria Island.
As earlier reported, the incident which occurred right in front of Quilox--the ritzy nightclub, resulted in heavy gridlock as motorists were directed to take other routes to their destinations.
When Pulse visited the scene of the incident, the tanker had already been towed away.
Our correspondent witnessed some Lagosians scooping diesel from nearby gutters into gallons and buckets, despite the presence of Rapid Response Squad (RRS) officials in the area.
Some policemen at the scene were spotted engaging some of those scooping diesel in a suspicious manner.
Meanwhile, the road which was earlier blocked to cordon the area and prevent a possible conflagration, has now been opened to traffic.
