Two days after explosion of pipeline, Abia community alleges fresh fuel leakage

 Two days after the pipeline explosion that claimed many lives in two communities in Abia State,
residents of one of the communities have raised the alarm over another leaking pipeline in the area.

The leakage was detected in Umuaduru village in Osisoma Local Goverment Area, with premium motor spirit (petrol) said to be currently gushing out.

The Public Relations Officer of Osisioma Ngwa Youth Congress, Nwabueze Princewill, said the group had contacted the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation on it, and they are awaiting response from them.

The group, however, advised residents of the community to steer clear of the areas pending repairs.

This is even as ONYC has lamented that the number of people who died in the NNPC pipeline explosion was up to 60.

They also threatened to drag NNPC to court to seek justice for the families of the victims.

Princewill, in a statement, said, The entire Osisioma Ngwa Community was rudely awoken in the early hours of Friday, 12th October, 2018, at about 1:00 AM by a fire accident/pipeline explosion that simultaneously happened at Umuimo and Umuaduru villages.

As at the time of making this report, over 60 persons have been confirmed dead, while about 100 other victims are receiving treatment, with only very slim chances of survival, as the injuries are too severe.

Property with value ranging in millions were lost.
