Commuters along a highway at Millennium City Kaduna, scampered for safety on Monday morning after a black marketer’s salon Golf 3 car exploded inside Shafa Filling Station after overloading his manually constructed tanks with over 200litres of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS).
Eye witness account said, “a black marketer name withheld, had entered Shafa Filling Station at about 8:45am on January 16, 2023 Monday morning with a Golf 3 salon car, which he allegedly uses for black market fuel business, but he however, ran out of luck when the tanks got filled and exploded.”
New Nigerian Newspapers gathered that the cause of the explosion was yet to be ascertained as at time of filing this report, but some good Nigerians braved it to push the car out of the filling station and made frank efforts at putting off the fire from the already burning car, but to no avail as the tanks exploded.
Fire Service truck was seen rushing in as at the time of filling this report.
Meanwhile the Management of Shafa Oil had closed down the station when our correspondent visited the scene of the incident.
