People started coming out and running leaving their houses and running for their lives.
When people started calling the Firefighter and others calling the Ikeja Electric(NEPA) not to restore supply because the tanker is very near to the transformer .

Around 4-5am The Firefighter came around and started spreading the chemical water to suppress the petrol flame while waiting for the Ikeja Electric team to drop the Low Voltage Mainline wire across the tanker and to assure them that the supply will not be restored.

Some little latter the Ikeja Electric Team arrive and begin isolating the LT Mainline wire across the tanker as shown below.

After all the isolation the firefighter begins their work lifting the head of the tanker gradually while suppressing the area with the extinguished chemical water as shown above.
