In the Nigerian metropolis of Lagos, a tanker truck carrying petrol exploded, killing at least six people.
Officials reported the tanker collided head-on with another truck, causing a fire that destroyed both trucks.
One of the victims of the Sunday evening event was a motorbike rider caught in the flames.
In recent years, Nigeria has experienced numerous fatal traffic accidents and explosions involving fuel tankers.
Poor roads, a disrespect for traffic norms, and poor car maintenance are the leading causes of road accidents in Nigeria.
