A new video has surfaced showing moments before the fuel tanker exploded on Otedola Bridge in Lagos, killing scores of people.

This rare footage shows the exact moment before Nigeria was yet again thrown into darkness: how the driver of the fuel tanker had lost control of the vehicle, how the occupants of the tanker had gotten off, throwing bricks behind the tyres to stop the heavy duty vehicle from rolling downhill and crushing people and cars behind.

“This is horrible,” says the driver of the car which recorded the moments. And just as he weaved his way out of the hold-up, the tanker exploded.

You can hear the sickening spray of the inflammable petrol as it swept over the vehicles behind, and how the vehicles at the front hurried to get out of the danger zone.
