The Plateau State Police Command has confirmed that 13 persons lost their lives while ten others sustained various degrees of injuries in the tanker explosion in Jos North LGA.


The Command also said 28 shops, eight cars, six tricycles and two motorcycles were destroyed in the incident.


Recall that on Wednesday, a tanker carrying Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) had brake failure along the Bauchi road area of Jos North LGA and fell off, causing an explosion.
