A petrol tanker has again fallen along the Enugu/Onitsha Expressway, at Abba Junction in Njikoka Local Government Area, not very far from Awka.

Press gathered that the tanker fell at about 8:30 am in the morning after the driver of the tanker lost control following a brake failure.

Attempt to get the Anambra State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Haruna Mohammed to confirm the development failed.

But a source who claims to be an eyewitness said it was true, adding that, “The petroleum products carried by the tanker spilled its content on the ground, but no fire has broken out yet.”
