    2 Persons Killed In Gas Explosion In Akwa Ibom

    Gas Explosion

    Two people were reportedly killed in a gas explosion on Nwanniba Road in Akwa Ibom State’s Uyo Local Government Area.

    According to reports, the incident occurred when a tenant wanted to prepare food. According to a source, the tenant used his phone torchlight for illumination before striking a match to ignite his gas cylinder, which immediately exploded, killing him and one other person.

    The source said,

    The incident occurred on Wednesday, October 6. Everywhere was still dark. A 21-year-old tenant staying in a one-room apartment wanted to cook in the early hours before going to work. He lit the gas cooker, not knowing that it was leaking.

    ”I was staying in my room when I heard an explosion. By the time I rushed out to the room, there was thick smoke all over the room; the fire was raging. No one could enter.

    Ubong Umoh, the Director of the Akwa Ibom State Fire Service, stated on Wednesday that the explosion was caused by the phone torchlight.

    Umoh bemoaned the fact that his organization had previously warned users of gas cylinders against using phone torchlight when cooking.

    He said, “Two persons were killed in the gas explosion and it happened because one of them was using a phone light. This is what we in the fire department have been preaching against that people should not use phone lights near gas cookers.”
