There was panic in Awka, Anambra State on Saturday morning as petrol tanker loaded with PMS fell into a ditch along the ever busy Zik’s Avenue

Residents and passersby ran for safety as the products spilled out, while some others started scooping it at opposite Saint Patrick’s Catholic Cathedral church in Awka.

Security operatives, the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) and the state fire service, were on hand to forestall a repeat of what happened in Onitsha few weeks ago.

In less than two months not less than three oil tanks have caused security havoc in Anambra state with lives lost.

Meanwhile to avoid fatal casualties, the police patrol teams cordoned off the area and prevented people from further scooping.

According to the State Police Public Relation’s Officer (PPRO), they had to take such proactive measure to stop the Onitsha experience.
