At least eight individuals have been confirmed useless after an petrol tanker overturned and exploded in southern Nigeria, police mentioned on Saturday. The loss of life toll was feared to be greater by locals, who instructed the press that folks will typically take the danger of attempting to scoop up petrol leaking from broken tankers or pipelines.
Police spokeswoman Irene Ugbo had earlier instructed reporters that officers had recovered 12 corpses. She mentioned 22 individuals have been taken to a hospital with critical burns.
