A pipeline explosion at Ile Epo around the Abule Egba area of Lagos has sent many persons scampering to safety. The area was sent into a frenzy as the pipeline burst into flames. Many concerned Nigerians took to social media giving updates on the development.
According to some of those who made posts online, the fire service was yet to get to the scene of the incident close to an hour after the fire broke out. As at the time of filing this report it was unclear what caused the pipeline to explode though some suggest that it is due to acts of vandalism.
It is also yet to be ascertained if there are any casualties and what extent of damage has been done to the surrounding properties.
