Recall that a fuel tanker fell in similar manner earlier this week at Abba junction along the Enugu-Onitsha expressway but recorded no casualty.
It was however the Ocha ja market incident that recorded so many casualties.
But the tanker accidents that happened today caused pandomium as people scampered for safety while some others were scooping the fuel.
A statement by the state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, SP Haruna Mohammed called on residents to stay away from the area to prevent any firm if disaster.
