Many Persons Injured As Explosion Rocks Abuja Community
Many people were injured following an explosion from a truck conveying the Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) in Gwagwa community, in Abuja.
The incident took place near the popular Police Junction in the community.
Some residents who spoke to Daily Trust said the driver had suddenly parked the vehicle after perceiving odour of the content, and alerted people to run.
A resident, Sulaiman Musa, said the driver stood there for a while before he disappeared after the vehicle got engulfed in fire.
Another resident, Abdulaziz Adam, said he and other volunteers ran towards the opposite side of the road and turned the oncoming motorists and pedestrians back, an act he said had saved the situation from getting worse.
