According to an eye witness account, the accident is as a result of “a head-on collision between the petrol-laden tanker and another tanker coming from the opposite direction”.

It was buttressed that the incident might have been caused by the ongoing reconstruction work on the Felele section of Lokoja -Abuja road, forcing motorists to ply one way.

Aside from the dead, many people sustained various degrees of burns and are receiving treatment at medical facilities in Lokoja, while shops and some vehicles parked around the scene of the incident were burnt.
