The tanker was said to have suffered brake failure but some said the crash was a result of overspeeding.

Residents of the area said the tanker lost control and crushed a taxi and three motorcycles on its path before it stopped.

One of the traders close to the scene of the accident said more lives would have been lost had the tanker had crashed into the filling station close to the scene.
