The Delta State Government has said that the recent fire incident at the Forcados trunk-line was caused by a technical problem, as per preliminary reports.

According to Deputy Governor, Kingsley Otuaro, who spoke to journalists after a stakeholder meeting with protesting host communities and a delegation from Chevron Nigeria Ltd on Saturday, confirmed that the blast had casualties.

“Preliminary reports have it that it was a technical problem that led to the explosion.

“There were indeed casualties.”
