Tanker explosion: Welder burnt to death, three injured in Anambra

The Federal Road Safety Corps, on Tuesday, confirmed the death of one person, while three others sustained various degrees of injuries in a petrol tanker explosion at a welder’s workshop in Amawbia area of Awka in Anambra.

The FRSC Sector Commander, Mr Andrew Kumapayi, who confirmed the incident to the News Agency of Nigeria in Awka, said the explosion was caused by welding repairs being carried out on the tanker.

“An explosion occurred at a welders’ workshop around Amawbia Bridge in Awka about 3.00 p.m from a tanker loaded with petrol.

“The explosion occurred when a welder in the workshop was carrying out welding repairs on the tanker loaded with fuel.

“The welder was confirmed dead, while three people who were around the scene of explosion sustained various degrees of burns and have been taken to the hospital.

“The remains of the deceased had been deposited at the mortuary,” he said.

Kumapayi said the state fire service had, however, succeeded in putting out the fire from the explosion.
