There was pandemonium at Kingdom Heritage Model School located at Jahi in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja as parents rushed to pick up their children following a tanker explosion near the school.
Kingdom Heritage Model School belongs to Living Faith Church, aka Winners Chapel.
Bishop David Oyedepo is the founder and presiding Bishop of the church.
The incident occurred at about 11:30 am when a tanker loaded with diesel tipped over on its way to supply a gas station in the area.
The tanker went up in flames, causing a commotion in the area as parents thronged the school to get their children.
It was gathered that the school management had sent a ‘distress message’ to the parents to pick up their children for safety purposes following the explosion.
Many parents who could not understand the nature of the explosion thought that the school and the church were under attack considering the insecurity in the country.
