He said: “The truck lost balance and spilled its content very close to the Airport Garage which is the road leading to the airport from Ikeja.
“Fire fighters responded quickly and diluted the contents with a ” foam blanket”, to prevent any fire outbreak.
“Also, some officers were quickly deployed to the nearby FAAN residential quarters to monitor the situation.”
DSP Joseph Alabi, spokesperson for the Lagos Airport Police Command, who also confirmed the incident to NAN, commended the roles played by all agencies to avert the disaster.
Alabi said following the incident, the Police from Area F Command and traffic officials embarked on rerouting vehicles coming and going into the airport to ease the traffic gridlock.
