The Apata Ibadan depot of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) was Wednesday gutted by fire.
Sources said the fire incident occurred at the loading section of the depot.
Sources at the Ibadan NNPC depot said the fire incident caused traffic gridlock for motorists plying the area, especially the Benbo- Govt College area, as well as the Apata-Abeokuta road.
Men of the Oyo state Fire Brigade were said to have spent lots of time trying to put off the light.
However, as at the time of sending this report, there has been no official statement from the Ibadan depot of the NNPC.
