Properties worth millions of naira were destroyed on Wednesday after an early morning explosion rocked the Abule Egba area of Lagos State.
Vehicles, houses and offices were destroyed in the explosion, while many were left injured in the explosion.
The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency’s (LASEMA) on its official Twitter handle said the explosion was as a result of oil spillage.
Residents, however, blame the inferno on the alleged activities of oil vandals which led to a rupture in one of the pipelines.
Officials of LASEMA, Lagos Fire Servicemen and other security agencies have since mobilised to the scene to combat the fire.
