Five people are confirmed dead and properties worth millions of Naira destroyed in the Abule Egba area of Lagos State as fire explosion ravaged the locality.
The fire which began around 3:30am on Wednesday is reportedly as a result of pipeline vandalisation. This is the second time Abule Egba will be experiencing such devastating occurrence.
Recall on the 26th of December 2006, the heavily populated neighborhood of Abule Egba, Lagos was rocked with an explosion killing hundreds of people.
Just like this present explosion, the incident occurred after a pipeline carrying petroleum products was punctured by thieves attracting hundreds of people in the area who were scoping the fuel before the explosion occurred.
