The crash is the third in a week.

For the third time within a week, a tanker has crashed along the Ibadan – Lagos Expressway spilling fuel on the road.

The crash occurred after the Redeem Camp on the expressway, forcing the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, to divert traffic.

A post by the FRSC social media coordinator said a tanker with registration number XE 545 LRN crashed and spilled fuel on the road.

“Traffic is heavy and there is a congestion around the scene. Motorists from Lagos are advised to go through the alternative route Mowe – Ofada – Papalanto and come back to the express road through the Shagamu interchange while, those from Ibadan axis should divert from the Shagamu Interchange to Papalanto – Ofada – Mowe,” the road safety corps said.

The FRSC said its officers and Fire Service officials are at the scene to effect traffic rules and maintain law and order.
