Many Feared Dead as Tanker Explodes in Lokoja, Kogi State

A tanker was involved in an accident which led to an explosion in Lokoja, Kogi State.
The tanker was said to have lost control and collided with a tricycle and other incoming vehicles which resulted in an explosion and a wild fire that claimed the lives of school children, traders, drivers and pedestrians on the road.
The exact number of persons who have lost their lives in this explosion still remains unknown as fire fighters and emergency technicians are on ground to rescue and provide adequate assistance.

This is really saddening as this is not the first time that a tanker explosion has claimed the lives of persons on the road and still nothing has been done or even proposed to remedy this.

Many the souls of the departed find peace.
