A section of the Nigerian Pipelines and Storage Company Limited, a subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Apata, Ibadan was on Wednesday afternoon consumed by a raging inferno

According to an official of the corporation, the incident occurred in the loading section of the depot, damaging some of its facilities.

As at the time of filing this report, men of the Oyo State Fire Service are battling with the inferno.

The fire incidence had  caused traffic gridlock around the Odo-Ona-Apata Road and Bembo-Government College Area, a  development  which had halted commercial activities in  the area  and  left many motorist stranded

The Apata depot of the NNPC was re-commissioned in October 2017 after long neglect.

Meanwhile, men of the Oyo state fire service  had been on top of the situation in order to put out the fire.
