8 Die, 101 Injured This Morning In Jos Gas Explosion

A gas explosion has occurred this morning at the Plateau State Water Board killing 8 and injuring 101. The explosion has now been confirmed by the State Government who has released a press statement saying it has been controlled.

“One hundred and one (101) people are receiving treatment at OLA Hospital, Evangel Hospital (Jankwano), Plateau Specialist Hospital and Airforce Hospital, some of which have been discharged,” the statement said. “Eight (8) people have been confirmed dead as a result of the inhalation of the contaminated air,” Emmanuel Nanle, the director of press and public affairs to Governor Simon Lalong said in the press statement.

He further explained that “there was an excess Chlorine inhalation from an exploded Chlorine Cylinder by residents around the Lamingo Water Board Treatment Plant.

“The contamination has been contained and does not affect the water supplied to Public Mains. Water from the public mains is safe for consumption and is not affected in anyway,” he said.
