NNPC Speaks on cause of Lagos explosion



NNPC on Lagos explosion

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has revealed the cause of the Abule Ado explosion in Lagos State was as a result of gas explosion.

NNPC Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Dr. Kennie Obateru, on Sunday evening disagreed with the claim that the NNPC pipeline was the caused of the explosion.

The NNPC boss said investigations found that a truck hit some gas cylinders stacked in a gas processing plant located near the corporation’s system 2B Pipeline Right of Way which resulted in the explosion.

However, the country’s oil corporation has already mobilized Health Safety Environment experts, Medical and Security personnel from their company Depot in Lagos to salvage the situation.
