Preliminary investigations have revealed that a leakage in one of the gas cylinders onboard the container truck with registration number GT 9423-10 triggered last Sunday’s explosion at Tinga.

Six (6) persons were confirmed dead and others who sustained various degrees of injuries are on admission at the Bole Government Hospital.

The incident occurred at Tinga, a notable mining community near Bole in the Bole District of the Northern region.
