On 25th June, a tanker laden with the popular premium motor spirit, PMS otherwise known as petrol, fell across the road at the Abaranje road junction of the ever-busy Ijegun road while trying to veer unto the major road from the narrow Abaranje road.
The instantaneous response of the Divisional Police Officer of the Ikotun police division who led his men to barricade off the danger zone to avoid calamities saved the day.
Men of the fire service also arrived to prevent the outbreak of fire, emergency responses which stopped the possibility of the fire outbreak that would have enveloped the area, including the famous Twins Faja Filling station and stores.
After the rapid intervention of the relevant safety authorities, the tanker was removed for traffic normalcy to end the tension which gripped residents.
It is however wrong for anyone to believe one Apex reporter Chukwudi Samuel who writes hatefully about the management of Twins Faja as the one who attempted to burn down the neighborhood.
