President Mahama has visited the Goil Filling Station at Nkrumah Circle that caught fire last night.

Mahama’s arrival is coming hours after the facility was completely razed down by fire, leaving several people dead.

Close to hundred people people have been confirmed dead, while several others are injured.

The number could go up, security officials fear.

The filling Station, close to the main Nkrumah Circle branch of the Ghana Commercial Bank was completely razed down by fire in an havoc that lasted several hours.

A joint team of security personnel from the Fire Service, NADMO, and military, tried for hours to access the location but to no avail as the road leading to the location was flooded.

The fire, which started some few minutes past 10pm Wednesday evening, spread to nearby structures.

The incident is happening after a heavy downpour in Ghana’s capital Wednesday left thousands stranded. The rains, which fell for well over three hours caused heavy vehicular traffic.

While most parts of the capital including the Nkrumah Circle has been declared a “no go area’, several residential and office buildings have also been left wrecked.
