A tanker laden with premium motor spirit exploded on Friday morning at the Upper Iweka junction of Onitsha, Anambra State.
Many shops and building around the scene are feared burnt as a rest of the fire from the explosion of the tanker that had broken down along the busy Onitsha-Owerri Road in front of the Relief Market.
The fire which started at 8.30am had caused a long standstill of vehicles in and out of Onitsha.
Fire service both from Anambra and Delta states have arrived the scene and are battling to quench the fire amid a shortage of water.
