The NADMO Director for the Upper Denkyira West Municipality, Isaac Gyasi told reporters that ‘two people died on the spot while 22 other people sustained severe injuries. Some have been transferred to the Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital to be given intensive medical attention’
Throwing more light on the subject he said ‘The guys in the refinery sent an okada rider to fill a gas cylinder they use for their operations. But I can’t tell whether there was a leakage or not. What we were told was that after the okada rider returned with the cylinder and was handing it over to the owner there was a blast. What we noticed after we got to the scene was that the body parts of the guy at the refinery had been torn into pieces and the okada rider was also in a pool of blood’
