The president of Ohaneze Ndigbo in Lagos State, Chief Solomon Ogbonna, reacting to the situation called on the state government to conduct a thorough investigation into the explosion. “The government must immediately do all that is necessary to avert a reoccurrence. I am calling on the Lagos State Government to investigate this and not dismiss it as a mere gas explosion. The damage is huge,’’ he said.

A resident, Mr Japheth Okafor, told the NAN that he narrowly escaped death from the explosion. He said that an alarm raised by his boss alerted him and others to escape through a window. “Before the explosion, the sky changed to white and we started perceiving gas odour, a few minutes after, there was an explosion. “My boss screamed and asked us to jump through the window. That was how we escaped this morning,’’ Okafor expressed.

Mr Mele Kyari, Group Managing Director, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, blamed the fire on gas leakage from activities around an oil pipeline.

However, many people felt the impact of the explosion kilometres away in Lagos as windows, doors of houses were shattered.
