A tragic auto crash occurred along the Abuja-Keffi Nasarawa expressway on Saturday as a petrol tanker rammed into some vehicles.
We could not immediately confirm the exact number of persons who were killed in the accident which happened at about 10 pm.
A few of the vehicles plying the busy route also caught fire after the collusion. It was not immediately clear if the tanker exploded.
A video of the scene showed residents lamenting the development which caused a gridlock along the route.
The expressway is known to usually experience heavy traffic especially along the Nyanya/Maraba axis.
The incident happened about 12 hours after a petrol tanker exploded along the Alagbole-Akute Road in Ogun state.
