Ogun bans fuel tankers, articulated vehicles from flyovers

Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State on Tuesday banned fuel tankers and other articulated vehicles from plying flyovers in the state.

Mr Abiodun announced this decision during his assessment visit to the scene of tanker explosion, which occurred on Monday in Abeokuta, claiming three lives with many others injured.

The governor also vowed that stiffer punishment would be meted out to any tanker driver found culpable.

According to him, the ban is meant to safeguard the lives and property of the citizens.

The governor, however, confirmed the death of three persons as against the one earlier reported in the Tuesday’s tanker explosion, while six others sustained injuries.
