Two persons were on Saturday burnt to death in an overnight tanker explosion on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway in the Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State.

The victims are a driver and a motorboy.

The inferno also destroyed 35 vehicles reportedly parked for sale along the traffic corridor.

It was gathered that the diesel-laden tanker fell on its side and spilt its content which later sparked off the fire.

Speaking on the incident, Spokesperson for the Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps, Babatunde Akinbiyi, said one person sustained injury and has been taken to the Olabisi Onabanjo Teaching Hospital, along with the remains of the two dead victims.
