Houses, Cars Burnt As Vandals Cause Explosion At Abule Egba

Reports reaching us have it that a pipeline at Abule Egba area of Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city, exploded in the early hours of Wednesday, December 19, 2018.

It was gathered that the fire, which started at about 3:00 am, was caused by the activities of pipeline vandals.

It was also learnt that the incident, which occurred at Oko Oba road, around Tipper Garage, Agege, resulted from oil spillage from a tanker.

Vandals were said to have taken over the spillage area and while bunkering activities were ongoing, the area became engulfed in flames.

While residential and commercial houses and cars are reportedly affected with many people scampering to safety, casualties are yet to be taken to account.

Motorists have been urged to find alternative routes.

Officers of the Lagos State Fire Service are currently on ground trying to battle the flames to prevent it from spreading to adjoining buildings as well as the nearest petrol station.
