At least 45 people were killed after a crashed fuel tanker exploded in Benue State in northern Nigeria on Monday.

The driver of the tanker had lost control of the vehicle after trying to dodge a pothole, eyewitnesses say.

It reportedly caught fire after an exhaust pipe from a passing bus scraped on the ground, causing sparks to fly.

At least 10 bodies have been recovered and at least 70 people suffered serious fire burns, said local officials.

“From the look of things and considering their condition, many of them might not survive,” Federal Road Safety Commission Sector Commander Aliyu Baba told AFP news agency.

People had gathered around the crashed tanker after the crash, with some attempting to salvage fuel, witnesses say.
