The Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, on Monday ordered the closure of petrol stations with Liquefied Petroleum Gas ( LPG) skits in the state.

He also directed security agents to seal off two petrol stations gutted by fire on Sunday night.

The governor gave the directive when he visited the scene of the explosion at Boromeo Roundabout in Onitsha.

Obiano warned fuel dealers to desist from building gas skits within their premises.

He said: “I got information that the fire was ignited when the dealers were in the process of offloading and discharging cooking gas. It is quite unfortunate.

“But I am happy with the quick response of the state fire service and security agencies.”

The Director of the State Fire Service, Martin Agbili, who accompanied the governor to the scene of the fire incident, said the agency’s operatives spent over six hours battling the inferno.

He said: “Two diesel-laden tankers and about seven cars were burnt during the inferno, and the fire was extinguished with a mixture of water and chemical foam compound.

“For now, we cannot ascertain the cause of the fire until a proper investigation is carried out.”
