2018 APC presidential flagbearer, Dr. Samura Mathew Wilson Kamara visited the disaster scene where a forty feet NP fuel tanker exploded and resulted to many deaths and destruction of properties in Bai Bureh Road, Wellington in Freetown.

On Friday 5th November, 2021 at around 10:00 PM, a forty feet NP fuel tanker collided with a tipper truck that led to the spill of fuel from the tank. Residents around rushed to fetch the fuel as it was spilling all over the street. Unfortunately, the fuel tanker exploded and led to over 400 unconfirmed deaths, destruction of vehicles, motorbikes, shops, business tables and many other properties.

The 2023 APC presidential hopeful visited the scene and extended his condolence to the victims, families and friends.
