Two persons have been reportedly burnt to death in a fire explosion at the Odumodu Junction, Umunya in Oyi Local Government Area of Anambra State.
The incident, which occurred around 8:25am along the Enugu-Onitsha expressway, involved a tanker loaded with gas and a shuttle bus.
AN24 gathered that the gas-laden tanker collided with the shuttle bus following a tyre-burst, resulting in a fire explosion that left two passengers in the bus burnt beyond recognition.
Confirming the incident, Anambra State Director, Fire Service, Engr. Dr. Martin Agbili attributed the cause of the fire to tyre-burst.
An eyewitness said the tanker spilled its contents through the drainage which generated flames and consumed everything on its way.
