In what will come across as a really startling development, a tanker explosion has claimed a life in Anambra.
The explosion reportedly claimed the life of a welder at a mechanic workshop in Oyi Local Government Area of Anambra State.
Spokesperson of the State Police Command, SP Haruna Mohammed, who confirmed the incident said the explosion occurred on Saturday, November 28, about 2:30pm, at the mechanic workshop located along new road toll gate in Ogbunike.
“The incident took place when a welder named Richard ‘m’ surname yet unknown was on top of an empty Fuel Mack Truck with REG number XA-740-CAL trying to weld the upper compartment.
