The incident already caused traffic gridlock on Apata-Abeokuta Road. There has been no official statement as at the time of filing this report, as men of the State Fire Service were battling hard to put off the fire.

The depot which was  reopened for operation two years ago was part of the turn-around maintenance of the government to ease fuel loading and distribution.
