At least three persons have been confirmed dead after a massive gas explosion that occurred at the Sabon Tasha area in Kaduna state today January 4th. It was gathered that a gas station which is located by the main road opposite Total Filling station, at the ever busy Sabon Tasha in Kaduna, exploded at about 1pm.
According to reports, the explosion completely shattered the bodies of those who lost their lives in the incident. The state’s security operatives were seen packing body parts which littered the road.
An eyewitness who escaped the blast, Philip Kambai, said;
“I just finished cutting my hair and was walking out then I heard boom! I fell down but I managed to get up. Then I saw fire. Immediately, I went behind and climbed a fence and in the process, I sustained injuries. One person also climbed the fence, but I doubt if the barber and two others came out”.
