A tanker conveying fuel has exploded in Akure, Ondo State. The explosion occurred some hours ago at the Shagari Village junction along the Ilesa/ Owo Federal Highway.According to eyewitness reports, no fewer than six people died in the inferno. Vehicles plying the route at the time were also burnt in the explosion which occurred a short distance from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) mega filling station in Akure, the Ondo State capital.  An eyewitness said: “The fire incident was caused by an articulated petrol tanker coming from the Lagos road, which lost control. Many people driving from the other side of the junction were all trapped as the petrol tanker immediately went up in flames."Although, we don’t know the figure of those involved, but I am very sure that the occupants of a Toyota car that hit the petrol tanker have been burnt to ashes.” Live fire burning in shagari junction in Akure.
