On Wednesday, near Koko junction section of the Benin/Sapele Expressway, Ethiope West council area of Delta state, atleast 17 lives were allegedly claimed in a tank explosion.

It was gathered that the petrol tanker was trying to  manoeuvre a bad spot when the tanker fell.

However, while the driver went to report at the police station, residents of the community were said to have started scooping fuel from the fallen truck which caused the explosion.

According to a source:

”That was what caused the fire. The driver had gone to report that the tanker fell. The next thing was fire.

“I don’t know the number of persons that died because we were not allowed close to the place. A car got burnt. The tanker got burnt too”.

The corpses were taken away while the injured ones were taken to the hospital by officials of the FRSC and other security agencies.
