Fuel Scarcity: Lagosians Scoop Fuel from a Fallen Petrol Tanker – PHOTOS



A tanker carrying fuel was involved in an accident Thursday morning at Asese, along Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

Luckily, there was no explosion, but people not minding the dangers, brought out their jerrycans and started scooping the scarce commodity from the tanker.

      Have a little faith. Nigeria is the sum of us all; including you. If we all decided to work a little harder. obey the rules a bit more, we’d have no complaints.

      Running to a country others have fixed; bit of of copout in my opinion.

    Please if you are planning to relocate to Nigeria, erase that thought from your head (at least for now). I returned to Nigeria for my internship and boy, am I seeing stars?!

    Its like my village people are after me o! I read all this bad news about 9ja every day in the comfort of the America and I miss 9ja like crazy, I want to come home. How can I be this comfortable but still want to come back to 9ja despite all the tales of agony? Is somebody calling my head there ni?

      Yes somebody is definitely calling your head and na the people whose head they called worse pass for Niger o. If you go to Niger because your head was called, success will be very far from you o. Please go to church, I don’t want your story to come up on aunty Bella. Please stay prayerful and let God order your steps.
