Scores Of Illegal Petroleum Refiners Roasted To Death In Rivers Community!

Over 25 persons have been reportedly roasted to death following an explotion which occurred in an illegal petroleum products refining hideout in Rumuekpe community, Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State.

Scores also sustained varying degrees of injuries following a spark as the illegal refiners of crude which is known as kpofire were ‘cooking’ their products.

A source told Themeteornewshub that the unfortunate incident occurred on Thursday night.

His words:”The incident happened at about 10pm on Thursday night at Ekwuche village close to the Ospac check point. Some guys who went to cook crude got burnt when fire sparked from the ovum used in cooking the oil”

“Four of victims who were recognizable are from the community while several others were burnt beyond recognition and many suffered different degrees of injuries while others are still missing”

It will be recalled that several persons were burnt to death in Rumuekpe community barely two weeks ago in similar circumstances.

The activities of oil bunkerers and illegal refining of petroleum products have in recent times become a major source of income for its operators even as it continues to cause environmental hazards occasioned by soot and pollution with attendant health issues in the Niger Delta region.
