Two persons have been allegedly killed in an explosion that rocked the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, on Thursday morning.
According to Daily Trust, the explosion occurred around 11am at the Marcque Event Centre within the Presidential Library.
It was gathered that technicians were topping up gas into an air conditioner before it exploded.
A worker at OOPL who spoke to newsmen, but pleaded not to be named, said two people have been confirmed dead following the incident.
“The two gates leading into OOPL were shut while the security guards at the gate are currently turning visitors back,” the worker said.
It has been reported that the State Fire Service and some officials are currently in the premises to put the situation under control.
This is the second explosion that will rock the city within a week after a similar incident was recorded at Conference Hotel, owned by the former governor of the state, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, which reportedly killed two persons
