Pictures from Abule Ado Explosion that Rock Festac Town

An alleged pipeline explosion has occurred at the Abule-Ado area around Festac town in Amuwo Odofin Local Government area of Lagos State.

The massive blast reportedly rocked neighboring areas, sparking a massive blaze that has destroyed nearby buildings including a school.

Plumes of smoke have been seen rising into the sky, but our correspondent on the scene says the area has been cordoned off. An eyewitness told channelsTV correspondent that a tipper offloading sand caught fire, which spread to a nearby pipeline, triggering the blast.

The director-general of LASEMA Dr Femi Osanyintolu confirmed that the pipeline had earlier been vandalized by unknown persons. Many nearby houses have been destroyed by the blaze while the explosion damaged buildings around the area and its environs.

The Lagos State Fire Service says there are buildings on fire in Ado Soba, Abule-Ado, and Amuwo-Odo.
