Tragedy was averted on Tuesday morning after a tanker exploded on the Obiri-Ikwerre flyover along the East-West Road in Port Harcourt, the capital of Rivers State.

The incident occurred at about 9:30am.

The tanker said to be carrying Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) fell over and exploded while trying to navigate the roundabout.

The impact of the blast was felt kilometres away as some of the residents said their windows were shattered while others reported feeling the vibrations.

Meanwhile, at the time of filing this report, the Fire Service is working assiduously to put out the raging inferno.

This medium also gathered that there was no casualties, as the driver managed to scamper for safety just before the explosion.

Police and Rivers State government are yet to issue a statement in respect to the development.
