N/R: One dead; scores injured in gas cylinder explosion

At least one person has died with scores injured after a gas cylinder exploded at the Lamashegu Industrial Area in the Northern.

The injured have been rushed to the Tamale Teaching Hospital.

Eyewitnesses said the gas cylinder was being used by a welder when it suddenly exploded in the area near the Guinness Ghana deport – a walking distance from the SADA office.

According to Starr News’ Northern regional correspondent Eliasu Tanko, several items including kiosks have been destroyed.

The explosion comes barely 10 days after a similar one at Takoradi in the Western region where scores of people were fatally injured.
