Over 40 kiosks, some cars and a bar have been burnt to ashes at a slum under the Achimota overhead bridge.

Residents at the slum located between Eden Securities and Makey Pub woke up to the Tuesday morning and are counting their loses.

Eyewitnesses say the fire started from one of the kiosks belonging to the son of the landlord who sold the land to Makey Pub.

Properties running into millions of Ghana cedis were destroyed when a gas exploded at Achimota in the Greater Accra Region.

According to reports by Angel News’ Sarfo, the explosion happened in the early hours of Tuesday, 7th January, 2020; the cause of the explosion remains unknown.

Below are PHOTOS from the scene:

They suspect the fire was deliberate because the new landowner has paid the tenants to move away from his property.

According to them, it is to send a message to them that they have overstayed their deadline but the has denied this. 

However, the fire affected more people than those who have been asked to move.
