“Hon. Adeola further call on relevant regulatory agencies to come up with policies on the control and maintenance of articulated vehicles carrying explosive substances like petrol as most of the accidents relating to such vehicles could be traced to lack of maintenance as well as their hours of operation in densely populated areas like Alimosho,” his spokesperson, Kayode Odunaro, said.
There has been a series of such incidents in recent days.
