Former Ghanaian UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has commiserated with victims of Wednesday’s explosion at the Nkrumah Circle GOIL Filling Station.

In a Facebook post, the respected global leader said:

“My thoughts are with the victims of the explosion in Accra and their loved ones. May they rest in peace.”

His comment comes hours after several national leaders toured the scene. It is also coming a day after two West African countries, Senegal and Cote D’ Ivoire presented relief items to the Ghanaian government as support.

Togolese President, Faure Gnassingbe, led a delegation to tour the Police, 37 Military and Korle-Bu Teaching hospitals.

Wednesday’s inferno and floods has resulted in over 200 deaths. Officials say they are still counting losses in a salvage operation expected to end Sunday.

Bodies retrieved from the wreckage have been deposited at various hospitals in the capital, Accra.
