Tanker Explosion On Kara Bridge, Lagos-Ibadan Road: LRU & Fire Service Were Attacked By Hoodlums While Responding To Fire

The agency responded to the incident at 0105hrs this morning according to the State emergency response plan. The joint team (agency + @LAG_FireService) was waylaid on arrival by a group of miscreants brandishing weapons and was forced to seek extra police cover from the Isheri Police Station. The operation commenced with the police protection until the group of assailants grew larger and caused significant damage to vehicles and threats to life of our personnel.
