Gas explosion at the Tulip Inn Hotel at Shiashie in Accra has killed four employees after all attempts to save their lives at the hospital proved futile.

The incident happened around 1:00pm on September 26, 2017 in the hotel’s kitchen.

The impact of the explosion was so intense that it tore part of the wall and killed the staff of the hotel.

The incident, according to reports by the Daily Graphic affected the four staff – Francis Dzigbor, electrician; Emmanuel Baffoe Gyan, gas technician; Alex Akomani, cook; and William Gbedemashie, driver.

Some of the bereaved families have pointed accusing fingers at the hotel’s authorities for their failure to urgently make financial commitment towards the treatment of their loved ones.

A family of Mr. Dzigbor blamed the hotel authorities for their late financial commitment towards his treatment at the Nyaho Medical Centre that compelled the hospital to write to the management of the Tulip Inn Hotel announcing the transfer of the victim to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.

Some of the bodies have been deposited at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital mortuary.

An official at the Tulip Inn Hotel, Mr Matthew Agbi, disagreed with the doctor’s report, saying that the hotel paid for the cost of Mr. Dzigbor’s treatment.

Mr. Agbi ,who is an accountant and purchasing officer at the hotel, told the Daily Graphic that the hospital demanded about GH¢57,000 to cover the total cost of treatment of the four employees who were initially admitted to the facility, but the hotel could not immediately raise that amount.

He said the hotel advanced GH¢21,000 as the amount accrued to cover the medical bills for Mr. Dzigbor, but the hospital insisted on payments on the treatment cost of the four employees.
