Foamy Substance In Anthony Village Was From The Fire Service – Lagos Government Calms Fears



The Lagos state government has allayed fears of residents of Anthony Village who got alarmed at the sight of some mysterious foamy substance in their environs yesterday, July 8, 2020.

According to the Chief Press Secretary to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos state, Gboyega Akosile, the foamy substance was as a result of a blanketing process carried out by the Lagos state Fire Service.

The blanketing process was to prevent further accident from occurring after a container with Black oil fell around the area.

Situation Report: Vehicular incident around Anthony Village, Lagos. The attention of the agency has been drawn to videos circulating concerning some streets in Anthony Village.

Earlier today, there was a vehicular incident involving a lone articulated truck with registration number AAA 235-XW conveying a loaded double 20ft container.

It appeared to have lost control while in motion resulting in the obstruction of vehicular movement on the main carriage way.

Blanketing of the entire scene of incident was carried out by the Lagos State Fire service as a result of the content leakage from the container (Black oil) to prevent any secondary incident.

Further Investigation by LASEPA is ongoing to determine the nature of the chemical being transported in the container. Any additional corrective action required will then be carried out.

The reaction from this blanketing is what has led to the appearance of “snow/foam” in the aforementioned area. A full scale operation comprising LASEPA, LASEMA, LASTMA ,LAGOS FIRE SERVICE and NIGERIA POLICE have retrieved the container and cordoned it off the street.

We regret the inconvenience caused by the operation and are working to prevent secondary damage and to mitigate any further environmental challenges caused by the initial spill and the clean up operation.

That being said, we can confirm that no residents are trapped in their homes and plead for all affected persons to exercise patience and due caution.
