Yet another gas explosion nearly rocked Ghana Monday night at Ofankor but this time, disaster was narrowly averted.
Following in the footsteps of the Atomic Junction blast, the Trade Fair blast and countless others, this one at least was not fatal, although still concerning that we aren’t learning from our issues with gas.
The incident reportedly occurred at Ofankor White House last night, near the Rev. John Teye Memorial School. A fallen gas tanker was leaking and led to people fleeing the area in droves.
“People in the area fled to safety, I actually saw a fire tender headed for that direction when going home around 7 pm but I didn’t know what was happening…” a resident told myjoyonline.

The fallen tanker also blocked traffic and led to more than usual congestion on the very busy road.
“Traffic from Amasaman and Nsawam have been diverted,” the eyewitness said.
Ghana have developed an unhealthy penchant for explosions in recent years and it seems at every moment, anyone of us could be in harm’s way from any of these ‘accidents’.
