It was another sad day as at least 10 people have been killed, with several cars burnt, after a petroleum tanker exploded at Bomala Bridge axis of Gombe, capital of Gombe, on Saturday afternoon.
The petrol carrying tanker was said to have collided with a truck carrying bottled water along Gombe southern bypass.
Also, more than 10 charred bodies were reported to have been evacuated from the scene by personnel of the Nigerian Red Cross Society.
As of the time of filing in the report, officials of the Gombe State Fire Service were still trying to put out the fire.
The event is no doubt another tragic one for the state even as the state continues to battle with insecurity of lives and properties.
