There was a gas explosion in the Ibeju-Lekki area of Lagos on Tuesday evening, claiming the lives of two people and leaving several others injured.

This incident comes just one week after a similar explosion in Alayabiagba, Ajegunle area, which claimed no fewer than eight lives and left many with injuries.

Reports revealed that the explosion occurred at a gas retail shop in Abule Folly, causing a fire that spread to adjacent shops and destroyed goods.

SP Benjamin Hundeyin, the Lagos State Police Command Public Relations Officer, confirmed the incident.

“The explosion resulted in the deaths of two individuals, including the shipowner’s younger sister and a male customer. Three others were injured and are receiving medical attention at a nearby hospital. Four shops were completely destroyed in the blaze.

“The injured victims are undergoing treatment, while the remains of the deceased have been taken to the morgue for preservation.
