Over 54 cars were burnt after a petrol tanker had a brake failure on the Otedola Bridge at Berger, then hit the median and exploded.
Buhari said he is very sad to learn of the tragic loss of lives, tens of vehicles, property and other valuables in the petrol tanker fire.
“Sadly, this seems to be one of the greatest tragedies we have seen in recent times,” the President said.
He condoled with the government and people of Lagos on the tragedy while urging emergency services and law enforcement officials to do their best to limit the losses and damage from the incident.
Buhari added that the priority now is to save those people who could still be in danger.
