An eyewitness reported that the explosion happened after the leakage made contact with the exhaust of commercial motorcyclists in the area, leading to a fire that burnt several vehicles and their occupants.

50 people were left with various degrees of burns and had to be rushed to the Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital (DASH). The victims were transported to the health facility by sympathisers and officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC).

Many of the victims were reportedly rushed to DASH unconscious and naked as their clothes burnt off their bodies.
