Nigerians woke to up the news of a horrific explosion that occurred in Onitsha market , Anambra State. The fire started when a tanker laden with petrol lost control and swerved to the ground. The tanker fell from the vehicle and went up in flames after spilling a lot of petrol.
The fire claimed the lives of about 5 people which include a woman and her child. It also claimed over 500 buildings and other properties in the area. Wizkid , Simi

The pictures from the fuel tanker explosion at Onitsha , Anambra state make me grief-stricken. I condole with all the victims of this avoidable tragedy. An operational fire service department could have averted this. RIP to the lost souls.
