Pipeline Explosion in Lagos

In an instant, a loud bang shattered the serene Sunday morning. It shook the foundations of the earth as far as 15 kilometres from the scene of the incident. And in a wild melee, a thick black smoke bellowed towards the sky as fragments flew across space

There is fear that more bodies may be recovered at the scene of the explosion, which has led to a major inferno and destruction of property.

Emergency workers have responded to the areas affected by the explosion, said to be caused by the disruption of an NNPC oil pipeline, according to the National Emergency Management Agency (NAMA).
