It was gathered that the tanker exploded along the Calabar-Odukpani Highway in Cross River State, as some residents of the area were scooping fuel from a fallen petroleum tanker. The tanker laden with PMS was reportedly heading outside the state capital, when it suddenly lost balance towards the Federal Housing Estate along the Odukpani axis of the highway and fell off.

According to eyewitnesses, some of those scooping fuel were burnt beyond recognition while those who sustained third-degree injuries were taken to University of Calabar Teaching Hospital. Here are photos below;
