Truck fully loaded with patrol fell today being November 5, 2019 at Abba and Igbariam junction, along Enugu/Onitsha express road.

Anambra fire service officer and FRSC were already at the site in case of any unexpected event.

The truck has not spilled out and no life loss.

We recall that Anambra State Government has banned the fuel tankers from moving during the daytime to prevent the reoccurrence of the incident that happened on October 16, 2019.

According to Anambra State Commissioner for Information, Don Adinuba in a statement said that fuel tankers will only be allowed to move within the state starting from 8pm to 5am.

He has this to say:

“Following the incessant collapse of trucks carrying petroleum products in Anambra State in recent times, including one which happened in Onitsha earlier today (Thursday), the Anambra State Government has decided to restrict the time which vehicles laden with petroleum products can move in the state.”

“With effect from Saturday, November 2, 2019, such vehicles can be allowed to move within Anambra State from only 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.”

“The restriction is to enable agencies like the Anambra State Fire Service, the Nigeria Police Force, the Federal Road Safety Corps, the Civil Defence, the Anambra Traffic Management Agency and indeed all other security, law enforcement and safety agencies to respond effectively and in good time to emergencies created by such accidents.”
