Worried by the recent incessant crashes of tankers, the Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps, Boboye Oyeyemi, has registered the concerns of the Corps and that of government on the unwarranted loss of lives, loss of properties and damage to roads  and the highways.

The Corps Marshal, who stated this when he visited the chairman of the Nigerian Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers/Petroleum Tanker Drivers (NUPENG-PTD) in Abuja, expressed concerns that in the past two and a half weeks about 11 tankers have been involved in crashes;and called on the two organizations to have a joint decision to halt the trend.

The Head Media Relations and Strategy of the Corps, Bisi Kazeem, revealed that in a no holds bar meeting with NUPENG-PTD, the Corps Marshal noted thus: “most tankers do not have valves and whenever they fall, there is spillage of fuel and a resultant inferno occurs”.
