Fire Razes Several Houses, Worship Centre In Benin



The incident was caused by a petroleum-laden tanker which fell and spilt its content, bursting into flames and consuming buildings and shops including a church along the Benin-Akure axis of the community.

A worship centre alongside several houses was razed by fire on Thursday evening at Owan community in Ovia South West local government area, near Benin, in Edo.

Eyewitnesses told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the incident was caused by a petroleum-laden tanker which fell and spilt its content, bursting into flames and consuming buildings and shops including a church along the Benin-Akure axis of the community.

An eyewitness, Mr Mathew Fapohunda, told NAN in a  telephone interview that “the incident happened between 4pm and 5pm on Thursday.

“A tanker carrying petroleum product from Benin heading towards Akure fell into a gutter and burst into flames.

“We didn’t have the opportunity to verify the content of the truck as people ran for their lives.

“We were helpless but we quickly contacted the Okomu oil palm company which sent their fire fighter truck.

“Though they put out the fire but not before several houses, shops and a church along the road have been completely razed by the fire, consuming everything inside them worth millions of Naira.”

Fapohunda, who is one of the community leader in Owan, however, said no human casualty was recorded in the incident.

Contacted, FRSC sector commander in Edo, Mr Henry Benamaisia, said the command is yet to be briefed on the incident. (NAN)
