Two people died in a fire caused by a truck loaded with fuel that caught fire in the Moniya region of Ibadan, capital of Oyo State, on Friday.
The diesel tanker lost control as it descended the slope next to a gas station in Moniya, crushing a vehicle traveling to Ogbomoso.
It was concluded that several stores, cars, motorcycles, excavators, including the car park near the Akinyele Local Government Area headquarters, were destroyed by the hell that lasted several minutes.
Many traders and residents in the area fled for safety from the flames after the tanker caught fire.
