Two separate incidents in Kaduna, at the weekend, saw the roasting of six persons in an oil tanker explosion and a policeman dead in a gun attack.

The petrol tanker explosion took place at Mararaban, Jos, a community along Kaduna – Zaria road, at the outskirt of the metropolis, while the attack on the policeman was said to have occurred at about 10pm on Friday when some gunmen stormed a checkpoint and opened fire.

The tanker exploded when an articulated vehicle ran into it as it reversed into the busy Kaduna – Zaria Expressway. Eyewitnesses said as soon as the truck hit the tanker, they both went up in flames while the drivers and their passengers were burnt beyond recognition.

Kaduna State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Olufemi Adenaike, who confirmed the incident in which the policeman was shot dead, said a suspect had been arrested and detained while the body of the slain officer was deposited at the St. Gerard Catholic Hospital Kakuri, Kaduna.
