Meanwhile, the Executive Chairman of OYRTMA, Dr. Akin Fagbemi had said that the officials were immediately deployed to the scene, to evacuate the tanker and restore normalcy.
In his words, “We have engaged the services of high duty cranes and lift systems that can effectively assist in the ongoing rescue operation.
