Speaking in an interview on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem with Chief Jerry Forson, an eyewitness said a gas cylinder owned by one of the victims may have caused the incident.

It is suspected that one of the victims who had gone to refill his gas cylinder may not have allowed the gas to settle properly before its use.

The impact of the explosion caused the collapse of the building where the cylinder was in use as well as nearby houses.

The surviving victims have been sent to the Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi with others at the Bibiani Government Hospital.
