Emergency workers on Monday picked 25 more dead bodies from the scene of the Onitsha tanker fire that occurred on Sunday, thus increasing the figure from 50 to 85. The Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Red Cross Society, Anambra State chapter, Prof. Peter Katchy, said this in his office in Onitsha. He added that 29 others were still in critical conditions at various hospitals in the state. Katchy spoke just as the Vice Chairman of the Onitsha Newspaper Distribution, Directors Association, Emmanuel Uwakwe, told PUNCH Metro that four members of the body were among the dead. Katchy said, The state Governor, Willie Obiano, shortly after visiting the scene on Sunday, gave a directive to the management of Toronto Hospital, which is not far from here, to give proper medical attention to all the injured victims of the incident at the expense of the government. The Senator-elect for Anambra Central Senatorial District, Uche Ekwunife, who was at the scene on Monday, described the incident as a national disaster. Ekwunife promised to propose a legislation that would put an end to unnecessary loss of lives and property on the highways. She said, It is unfortunate that we continue to lose our loved ones in such careless manner. I want to express my deepest condolence to the families that lost their loved ones in this incident. I promise to make legislation along with my fellow senators that would put an end to horrible incidents on Nigerian roads.
