A gas explosion within the premises of Zenith Bank around Ministries in Accra, has left one dead, another in critical condition, and a third person with minor injuries.

According to Citi News sources, the deceased and the critically injured person, both welders, were engaged to dismantle a garbage container within the premises of the Bank, but their cylinders exploded during the process.

The third victim, an Uber driver, got injured while driving on the nearby road during the explosion.
