A driver and a motorboy were on Saturday burnt to death in an overnight tanker explosion on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway in the Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State.
The inferno happened at about midnight when a tanker lost control, fell and exploded.
The incident happened just after the Long Bridge where there is both a car park and car sales stand.
The inferno also destroyed 35 vehicles reportedly parked for sale along the traffic corridor.
The Spokesperson for the Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, Babatunde Akinbiyi, confirmed the incident.
Motorists on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway are locked in a gridlock following the tanker accident.
