A petrol tanker explosion which happened today along the Calabar-Odukpani Highway in Odukpani local government area of Cross River State, has left many dead, according to reports..

It was gathered the petrol tanker fell while trying to negotiate the bend with residents rushing to the scene to scoop petrol.

Eyewitnesses reported the clamour for petrol resulted into a spark as some of the residents used metal containers to scoop the product.

This led to an explosion which killed several people at once.

At the scene, the police tried to contain the situation as the fire raged.

A majority of the victims sustained third degree injuries and are currently at the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital.

The Lord shall preserve my soul... He shall protect my going out and coming in, amen.

When you leave your home in the morning and come back in the evening safely... Please always say "Thank You My Lord Jesus Christ" believe me there is always a reason to say thank you lord.

And this is one of the reasons.

In as much as this government has brought untold hardship to the citizens, people should be mindful of engaging in acts that would lead to their untimely death. It's indeed a pathetic sight. cry

Is it right to type RIP for most of those who died a senseless death?

Petrol accident and you went ahead to scoop, they have 10lives?

Normal human being should have ran 440km/hr from the scene.
