Five people have been confirmed dead with several others injured after an explosion that occurred at a gas filling station at Labadi in the Greater Accra region.

It is unclear yet what may have caused the explosion but eyewitnesses say that a number of people were present at the filling station at the time of the explosion.

 

The explosion is said to have occurred between the Labadi Cemetery and Trade Fair Centre.

 

The Member of Parliament-elect for La Dade Kotopon , Vincent Sowah Odotei said the injured have been sent to the hospital for medical care.

 

“…Unfortunately five people have lost their lives. Others have been taken to the hospital…As you can see the place is not the safe. It is still very dangerous and we have been asked that we bring the whole thing under control.”

 “It is too early to ascertain what might have caused the incident. We still do not know the extent of the disaster. We do not have a clue. We are waiting to see whether we can bring this under control,” he told Accra-based Citi FM.

Meanwhile, fire fighters have arrived at the scene to douse the fire.
