No fewer than three persons were burnt to death after a bus carrying petrol exploded in Lagos in the early hours of Tuesday.
It was said that the driver of the bus lost control of the vehicle after its brake failed.
The bus was reportedly carrying about 15 kegs of 50 litres of petrol each from Ikorodu when it rammed into a truck at Musiratu Lasisi Street in Isolo.
Residents of the area woke up on Tuesday morning to the gory incident, which left many of them wailing.
In the past few days, the city of Lagos has suffered shortage in fuel, which has brought back long queues at most filling stations. This has caused panic buy of the product at few stations selling it.
