The Ogun State Government has banned tanker drivers against the use of overhead bridge in the State to avoid the reoccurrence of Tuesday’s fatal tanker fire that occurred in Abeokuta, the state capital.

The Governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun who gave the directive at the scene of the accident during assessment, said stringent penalties to be put in place by the State Ministry of Transportation for defaulters.

The Governor was made to understand that the fire was caused by a brake failure and resultant collisions, which could have escalated but for the quick intervention of responders.

“We have invited burn specialists to treat victims with severe burns, and all victims whom I visited at the State Hospital, Ijaye and the Federal Medical Centre, Idi-Aba, will be taken off by the State Government”, he said.

Governor Abiodun further said his heart goes out to the families of the six casualties, as Ogun State grapples with this tragic event.
