Lagos residents panic over fuel pipeline leak on Isheri-Ikotun road

Residents of Fagbile Estate, Isheri
Ijegun Road, a suburb of Lagos, have fled their homes as a result of a
broken petroleum pipeline which spilled its content in the area.


One of the residents told the News
Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on condition of anonymity, on Thursday in Lagos
that she was woken up by the smell of fuel from the broken pipeline.
According to her, she saw some people
carrying fuel in different kegs at about 6.00 am when she woke up to
prepare food in her shop.

“At about 6.00 a.m, when I came out to
prepare food, I saw the movement of people from the direction of the
broken pipeline carrying kegs and buckets of fuel.
“I became afraid that if the pipe is not repaired, a repeat of the Ijegun fire might occur,” the women said.
As at the time of filing this report,
movement of commercial motorcycle operators, popularly known as Okada,
had been restricted around the area to prevent fire outbreak.
NAN gathered that the pipeline was
allegedly broken by vandals in the early hours of Thursday, and the
residents are urging concerned authorities to urgently intervene. (NAN)
