INCIDENT REPORT: POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD ON ASADAM ROAD

On Saturday, March 16, 2024, at about 13:10 hours, the Kwara Fire Service control room received a distress call regarding a fallen petrol tanker with registration number UDD 155 SA near Eucharistic Secondary School, opposite Coca-Cola junction, Asadam Road, Ilorin. This incident posed a significant threat to road users and pedestrians.

The courageous fire officers responded promptly to mitigate the potential danger. Upon arrival, they immediately commenced efforts to drench the tanker and its surroundings extensively, thereby reducing the risk of a fire outbreak. Additionally, the road was temporarily closed to ensure public safety.

The collaborative efforts of various agencies including the Federal Fire Service, Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps, Nigeria Police, and Kwara State Road Traffic Management Authority greatly facilitated these safety measures.

During the investigation, it was revealed that the driver noticed a parked truck suddenly, prompting him to apply the brakes abruptly while in motion. This sudden friction caused the detachment of the tanker's contents, resulting in its spillage on the road.

In conclusion, Prince Falade John, the Director of Kwara State Fire Service, emphasized the importance of safe driving practices for tanker drivers and all road users, urging them to exercise caution at all times.
