Abuja - An Ondo State filling station has been gutted by a mysterious fire which also razed two petrol tankers in the vicinity, Punch has reported.
Giant IBK Oil and Gas, a petrol depot in Ondo-Akure, was engulfed in an inferno on Wednesday afternoon, with the cause of the fire having not yet been ascertained.
No lives were lost in the blaze, although the site did cause a traffic gridlock on the expressway.

The fire is alleged to have started when the drivers of the tankers were offloading fuel into the station's underground fuel dump.
The inferno has since been blamed on one of the tankers not having met up with the Department of Petroleum Resources' (DPR) safety precautions.
