The death toll from Thursday night's explosion at the Louis Gas Station behind the Trade Fair Centre at Labadi in Accra has risen to nine.
The pressure of the fully loaded gas tanker was forced out 'like a missile' causing the explosion, he said on Joy FM's Super Morning Show Friday.
Some of the bodies were charred beyond recognition in a pre-Christmas tragedy. It has also left at least 10 in critical condition.
The entire skin of a toddler was removed by the severe burns as he walked about looking for his guardians.
The gas station was cordoned off, power supply in the neighbourhood cut as firefighters battled the flames for hours.
In the company of a safety officer and in an effort to obtain a first-hand understanding of the cause of the tragic events, Asaga said he found that the facilities in the gas station were top-notch.
"We noticed that the facility there had a very high level of integrity pipeline, dispensers and values were all intact," he said.
