Another tanker has fallen in Benue State barely two days after one fell and exploded in Oshigbudu in the Agatu Local Government Area of the state.

Ikwulono said, “Yes, another petroleum tanker fell around 4.00am today, it happened as you are entering Oshigbudu. The tanker spilt its content and exploded.
