Lagos - The Senator-elect for Lagos West Senatorial District, Solomon Adeola, has commiserated with constituents that lost property after a petrol tanker fire accident at the Iyana-Ipaja Bridge axis.

There were no casualties reported after the incident on Tuesday but several shops, houses and other properties around the area were totally burnt Adeola, who is the outgoing representative of Alimosho Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, said the accident was unfortunate at this trying period of the nation with serious hardship being experienced by the people on all fronts.

He expressed hope relevant agencies of government at state and Federal level should do all in its power to ameliorate the huge losses suffered by the people as a result of this accident.

“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.
