Oborevwori Condoles With Tanker Fire Accident Victims.

Delta State Governor, Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori has commiserated with the Ometan community in the Okpe Local Government Area of the state on the death of seven indigenes of the community from the Friday morning tanker fire accident.

Eyewitnesses said that the fire accident occurred around 10 am on Friday when the tanker laden with fuel fell on the road, after the tanker head detached while on motion in the Ometan community along the Warri-Sapele road.

Speaking at the accident scene, Oborevwori, flanked by Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Emomotimi Guwor and former Chairman of Okpe Local Government Council, Hon. Isaiah Esiovwa, empathised with the community on the unfortunate incident.

Witnesses noted that the victims were burnt beyond recognition just as several others sustained varied degrees of injuries and were hospitalized.

The incident also left some buildings including residential, makeshift caravans, vehicles and heavy-duty trucks destroyed.

According to witnesses, the mother of a three-year-old child was entrapped in the raging fire as she was making spirited efforts to rescue her child.

The development is coming barely four days after a gas tanker explosion killed many residents in Rivers State and destroyed properties.
