A National Petroleum Authority (NPA) interim report has found, the October 7 gas explosion happened after a driver's mate with no training in handling LPG was given the task of discharging the highly inflammable substance at a station.
The driver's mate took to his heels after he failed to stop the gas from leaking at the gas station at Madina Atomic Junction in Accra.
It was a failure that allowed the gas to spread in search of an unconfirmed ignition source leading to a tragic explosion that has left seven dead in Ghana's eighth gas explosion in the past three years.
The 8-page preliminary report was read out by veteran journalist Kweku Baako on Newsfile on Joy News channel on Multi TV.
