A group of drivers have been recorded on camera stopping at a place where a petrol tanker has got an accident and they are busily stealing petrol from the leaked part of the tanker. According to the person who recorded the video, they were on their way to Manso Keniago when their driver saw this accidented tanker by the roadside. He didn't explain how the accident happened but you can see that the petrol tanker has somersaulted.
According to this Ghanaian guy, the passengers explained to the driver that what has happened to the petrol tanker is very dangerous and that they should continue their journey. The driver told them that the cost of petrol in the country is expensive and that he will not move the car unless he loads gallons with some petrol. As a result of this, the driver parked his vehicle close to this tanker, left the passengers in the car and was seen loading his gallons with the petrol from the accidented tanker.
What is sad is that most commercial vehicles that came across this accidented tanker stopped and decided to steal some of the petrol while their passengers are waiting in the cars. Some men and women near the place where this accident happened were also seen with pans busily stealing petrol from the accidented tanker. If you watch the video carefully, you can see that this petrol tanker fell on a light pole and cables are very close to the tanker. With any little fire, anybody close to the location will die.
Some Ghanaians after coming across this video said that it is sad that we don't learn from previous incidents in this country. This is a similar situation that has killed a lot of people in this country. But some people seem not to learn anything from this. Who will their family members blame if the tanker catches fire and all of them burn into ashes? Will the government be responsible for their death or the witches in their families?
