Gas Plant Explodes In Anambra State,kills Two,others Injured by MrMontella(m): 9:16am On Feb 02, 2017

Two persons were reportedly burnt to death and two others sustained injuries when a gas plant exploded at Nkwelle-Ezunka in Oyi local council of Anambra State.

Two houses close to the gas plant, including
personal belongings of the tenants, were also burnt to ashes. The two victims who died in the inferno were the driver of the tanker that brought the gas and another young man,Ezenwoke Nwigwe, who hailed from Ikeala Ngwa in Abia State. He recently completed his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme in Ibadan, Oyo State and was residing with his sister in the area.

An eyewitness said the fire disaster occurred
when a tanker loaded with gas was being
discharged at the station. A security man at the gas station, Mr. Harrison Alphonsus, from
Adamawa State and the manager of the station, Mr. Tony Nwokonko, said the explosion caught one of the victims (Nwigwe) as he applied the fire extinguisher to quench the fire, only to be consumed by the fire.

According to them, the victims were rushed to the Orthopedic Hospital, Enugu where they were confirmed dead, while the injured ones are currently receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital.

The landlord of the burnt houses, Chief Nnamdi Okafor, said he would have lost his entire family to the fire, but for God’s intervention. He, however, praised the men from the Okpoko Fire Service in Onitsha, who brought the situation under control, adding, however, that the fire destroyed everything he had before help came.

I am a Phd student researching nigeria. Risk is what most nigerians fear. They are afraid of what will happen after. Question like ' who will take care of my family if I die ' what would happen to me if I do it. I don't want to become a begger. These are what keeps most nigerians from taking risk. That is why no body wants to challenge the government. It is what makes nigerians docile.
Here in nigeria our children are the insurance Company we have. They will take care of us when we grow old. So how can such children afford to take risk? Nigerian can never die for nigeria. Their loyalty lies elsewhere.
But what if there is an organisation like a god father that then agree to shoulder the risk of every nigerian for a monthly fees. What do you think will happen. I will call them big brother. It will be both an insurance company and a brotherhood. Any member intimidated by the government agents should report.
Ordinary nigerians have nobody to run to when they are offended. They just swallow it.
