The eyewitness added that as he was alighting the vehicle to negotiate with a vulcaniser beside the road, the tanker tilted and the container fell.

”The tanker had a flat tyre and in the process of trying to fix it, the tanker exploded and even the vulcaniser who was to work on the tyre was affected.

“The vulcaniser was fixing a motorcycle tyre when the tanker exploded.

“There were many houses that were affected, with some burnt to ashes. In fact, a mosque was also affected,” she said.

Mr Babatunde Akinbiyi, the Public Relations Officer of the Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), confirmed the incident to NAN on Saturday.

Akinbiyi said the fire was later put out after some houses had been burnt.

The TRACE spokesman stated that the tanker driver erroneously parked in a sloppy area while trying to fix his tanker’s tyre.

According to him, the container removed from the hook, fell and exploded.

He said the fire was put out on Saturday night

The Nigerian lady, Arowolo Olamide Temitope who was notably prevented from boarding an evacuation flight to Nigeria by the Lebanese airport management after receiving orders from her employer in Lebanon, has finally arrived Nigeria.

The 31-year-old was among 19 other victims who were received by officials of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) and the House of Representatives Committee on Diaspora Affairs at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport In Abuja, yesterday.

Temitope on her arrival, narrated her ordeal while in Lebanon to reporters, warning young Nigerian girls against travelling abroad.

A video of her had earlier circulated on the internet regarding the violation of her human rights in Lebanon.

In the viral video she was beaten by Mahmoud Zahran, the husband of her employer, Feyzeh Diab, on April 25, at their home in Choueifat, South of Beirut, after accusing her of stealing a phone.

During her narration, she revealed she received continuous instances of emotional, physical and sexual assault she recieved from Zahran and Diab.

Following the viral video, the Federal Government demanded the Lebanese authorities to bring her back to Nigeria.

Temitope who described Lebanon as ‘hell’ while speaking to journalists at the Abuja airport said, “I’m happy being home. Going to Lebanon is like (going to) a hell. Nobody knows that will happen there.”

“I advise other girls to stay here in Nigeria and try to make it the way the Lord puts them through, because going outside there was like a hell, not only in Lebanon. What I experienced in Lebanon, I pray even not for Satan to experience it.”

The Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Diaspora, Rep. Tolulope Akande-Sadipe (APC-Oyo) described Temitope’s return as “a dream come true.”

“Today, Temitope is back home, unfortunately, I will not allow her show her face, the whole issue has not come to an end we really want to understand what happened in court back in Lebanon.”

“We are happy, she is happy to be back home. I hope this will be a sign to other young girls out there who want to go abroad for greener pastures to ensure that the circumstances they are going into are the expectations they have when they signed up for these agents,” she said.

Arowolo’s employer had accused her of stealing $5,000 and attempting to kill him.

Her prosecution in court had been stalled as the accusers failed to show up, while she was granted bail.
