At least 12 vehicles were also said to have been razed during the explosion which occurred early Thursday morning.

The spokesman for the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Ogun State Command, Florence Okpe, confirmed the incident to newsmen in Abeokuta.

“Men of the fire service were contacted immediately and the area was cordoned to prevent a secondary crash.
