A tanker loaded with gasoline is lying on its back along Minister Hills–Mabushi highway in Abuja.

The tanker somersaulted last night as its driver lost control of the vehicle as he descended the hill. No casualty was recorded in the accident.

The tanker somersaulted two times and fell and then blocked part of the road.

The driver and other occupants of the tanker escaped unhurt.

However, this afternoon fuel began gushing out of the tanker posing serious danger to road users and residents in the city.

The accident has already caused a busy traffic snarl along Kubwa road this morning.

Policemen, Firefighters and Federal Road Safety officials were seen at the scene of the accident preventing the residents from scooping fuel and making an effort to safely discharge the content of the tanker.

A police officer on the scene said that they are making an effort to get Julius Berger construction company to vacate the tanker and move it from the way to end the blockade caused by it.

Scores of Nigerian have been killed in fires caused by explosion from petrol tankers.
