Just In: Another tanker explodes in East-West road in Bayelsa



A tanker laden with petroleum products has reportedly exploded along East West road in-between Imbiama and Zarama market of Bayelsa state.

The incident which occurred on Sunday afternoon along the East West road caused serious panic among residents in the Area.

It was learnt from a Facebook post by one Abenzi Gabice that the tanker was laden with petroleum products when it gutted fire.

The source said the complete tanker was razed down as there was no rescue efforts from any fire service authority at the time of the incident.

It would be recalled that a petroleum tanker was razed in the Warri axis of the same East West road on early June where the driver ran with the tanker to a safe destination before abandoning it.

However, effort to reach the Bayelsa Police Command’s spokesman, SP Asinim Butswat for comment proved abortive at press time.
