BREAKING: Explosion And Massive Fire Rocks Lagos, Ogun Border Communities

According to reports, on Thursday there was an explosion and massive fire outbreak around the Lagos and Ogun border communities.

The incident is said to have occurred at about 3:30pm around Balogun Bus Stop in Ishaga.  Many residents reported across social media platforms that it was as a result of a gas tanker about to enter a newly built plant in a residential neighborhood.

Confirming the incident, Ibrahim Farinloye , NEMA’s southwest Coordinator, said:

 “Yes, a tanker exploded at Balogun Bus stop, Iju Ishaga. Our people are already there and fire service has been informed.

“The tanker was trying to enter a gas plant when it exploded. There were domestic cylinders there and so, those ones also started exploding.

“The fire has not extended to any building. It is still within the gas plant. People sustained burn injuries but no deaths reported yet. We have contacted fire service. We appeal to people to stay away from the area,”
