Reliable information available to peacefmonline.com indicates that, three cars which got burnt to ashes near the Goil Fuel Station on the Spintex Road at around 1:00 pm on Tuesday, were caused by some fuel attendants.
It was earlier reported that, two vehicles were charred by the flames – but aftermath of the inferno shows three vehicles and one person seriously injured.
“A 2006 Toyota Sienna model, together with two other vehicles, were burnt to ashes whiles parked near the Goil Fuel Station. A gentleman siphoning the fuel also suffered serious burns on his hands and face,” an eye witness narrated.
According to the eye witness, “The vehicles were moved out of a workshop into the perimeter of the fuel station, which they both share as a compound.”
He narrated that “There was a discharge of fuel earlier in the day, and some workers of Goil were in the process of filling up gallons with fuel when the fire broke out.”
Owner of one of the burnt cars told Peacefmonline.com that “Staff of the fuel station have been tight-lipped.”
“We also found a funnel and marks of the drum used for siphoning the fuel at the location of the incident,” he said.
He also alleged that “The Goil attendants were smuggling fuel as they often do. An Abossey Okai pick up came to pick the gallons that the attendants had filled up to be sold.”
