The Lagos State Government has explained the mystery behind the foamy substance surging through Anthony Village on Wednesday.
Pictures of white foamy substance surging through Anthony Village had emerged online on Wednesday which got some Nigerians, saying that the state was experiencing snowfalls while some wondered what could have led to the development.
The attention of the LASEMA has been drawn to videos circulating concerning some streets in Anthony Village.
Earlier today, there was a vehicular incident involving a lone articulated truck with registration number AAA 235-XW conveying a loaded double 20ft container. It appeared to have lost control while in motion resulting in th obstruction of vehicular movement on the main carriage way.
Blanketing of the entire scene of incident was carried out by the Lagos State Fire service as a result of the content leakage from the container (Black oil) to prevent any secondary incident. The reaction from this blanketing is what has led to the appearance of “snow/foam” in the aforementioned area.
A full-scale operation comprising LASEPA, LASEMA, LASTMA ,LAGOS FIRE SERVICE and NIGERIA POLICE have retrieved the container and cordoned it off the street. Further Investigation by LASEPA is ongoing to determine the nature of the chemical being transported in the container. Any additional corrective action required will then be carried out.
