The incident was said to have occurred on Sunday, July 16 at one of the tank farms located in the Calabar Free Trade Zone. The question that is begging for an answer is why the operations manager of Linc Oil and Gas died in the inferno when his depot has no product?
Although the cause of the fire was not immediately known, a source, who craved anonymity, told Southern City News that it could have been due to activities of criminal elements that were siphoning petrol from the tank farm.
It was gathered that events leading to the fire incident started at about 2a.m., some moments after a vessel loaded with petrol was discharging the product into the tank farm from a distance of about one kilometre from the nearby Calabar River where it berthed. Emmanuel Jime says, though he suspects illegalities going on at the tank farm to be the primary reason for the incident, anyone or tank farm found culpable will upon the end of the investigation be prosecuted to serve as a deterrent.
