The death toll in the tanker fire in Ahoada, near Port Harcourt, may have reached about 150, according to latest reports.

Rivers State police spokesman, Ben Ugwuegbulem, confirmed the recovery of 95 bodies but some eyewitnesses insisted that the death toll was upwards of 150.

A fuel tanker had upturned and caught fire, trapping scores of people.

“People rushed there to scoop for fuel and there was a fire which consumed a lot of people,” said Ben Ugwuegbulem, the Rivers State police spokesman.
