Affirming the occurrence, the facilitator of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) in Imo state, Evans Ugoh, said in the wake of releasing its substance at the filling station, the oil big hauler was tied in with turning around and moving out of the premises when it was hit by a J5 business transport passing on pineapples on maximum velocity. The transport lost control and slammed into the truck, prompting a substantial blast.

Mr. Ugoh affirmed that one of the inhabitants of the J5 business transport, a female, kicked the bucket on the spot while 3 different people who supported lethal wounds have been hurried to a close by medical clinic for treatment.

He stated, in any case, authorities of the IMO state fire administration, Red Cross, Civil barrier, the Nigerian Police and NEMA authorities were all on the ground for salvage tasks.
