Truck Accident : NPA clears right of way at Tin Can Island Port

Lagos – The Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) said it had removed a container and an articulated vehicle involved in an accident at the First Gate of Tin-Can Island Port, Lagos.


It said in a statement by its General Manager, Corporate and Strategic Communications, Mr Adams Jatto, in Lagos on Sunday that it hurried to clear the scene to provide access to port users and guarantee ease of doing business.

It said that three imported cars were also affected in the incident which occurred on Saturday, adding, however, that no casualty was recorded.

“Our investigation showed that the accident happened when the truck driver was trying to manouvre his way and the container it was conveying rolled off and crashed on the already parked vehicles.

“While this incident is regrettable, the NPA as a responsible organisation has removed the container to provide access to port users.
