Residents scooping petrol from the tanker this morning

A petrol tanker that veered off the road and crashed around Ikot Ekpo Hill in Calabar this morning witnessed a huge crowd of scoopers who struggled to have a share of the product the crashed vehicle was conveying.

Our reporter say, even as the police tried to scare the crowd that congregated at the scene of the accident to scoop fuel from the fallen tanker at about 6am, the crowd kept pressing on.

With bowls and cans of different sorts, the crowd composed of men,women,children harassed the few police men armed with sticks and the police who eventually gave way to the crowd.

Portions of the the Ikot Ekpo hill have been eroded by erosion and this has led to several accidents in recent times but there seems to be nobody to address the situation.
