President orders investigation into gas explosion

Buhari prayed that Allah should grant the souls of those who lost their souls in the explosion peaceful repose and grant quick recovery to the injured.

 

President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday in Abuja directed a thorough investigation into the chlorine gas explosion in Jos, Plateau.

In a message of commiseration to the families of the victims, government and people of the state, the president said an investigation into the incident was necessary to avoid recurrence.

"The investigation should unravel the fact as to whether this was just an accident. Whatever is the case, we need to get to the bottom of this unfortunate and tragic incident,’’ the president said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the explosion had claimed not less than eight lives.

It left 112 other victims receiving treatment in four different health facilities in Jos.
