Another tanker crashed in the state of Benue barely two days after one crashed and exploded in Oshigbudu in the local government area of Agatu in the state.
Recall that twelve people were reported killed in Sunday’s explosion of tankers in Oshigbud and several houses set on fire.
The latest incident, according to sources, happened in the early morning hours a few meters from the site of the former incident.
