Disasters: Many Feared Dead As Dynamite Explosion Consumes An Entire Community In Begoro (video)

20th January 2022

Information just in is that a major explosion occuring at a community in Begoso in the Prestea Huni-Valley municipality in the Western region might have left dozens dead.

According to Joynews journalist Samuel Kojo Bruce, the explosion burnt down Apiate, a mining community to near ashes. He said so far just a few people who were far away from the epicenter of the explosion have been rushed to the hospital while the rest of the community remained silent. He added that he was not sure anyone will be found alive under the debris of their buildings in flames. As at the time of filing this report, the fire was yet to be quenched.

A Joynews Pulse reporter stated in his report that a vehicle carrying dynamite to a mining site in the community had a burst tyre. The driver allegedly signalled other drivers to clear off because he was carrying explosives. Unfortunately it crushed into an incoming tricycle (mototorkin) which failed to stop causing the explosion.

Meanwhile the police have issued a statement urging everyone to remain calm as they handle the disaster.
