JUST-IN: Pipeline Explosion Rocks FESTAC Area Of Lagos by Breastfeed: 12:03pm On Mar 15
There was a pipeline explosion in the FESTAC area of Lagos State earlier this morning.
According to eyewitness reports, many residents were awakened from sleep by the loud explosion.

Some of them even scampered after hearing the loud explosion, out of fear that it was a bomb blast.

Videos on Twitter show thick black clouds billowing from the scene of the accident. At least, this is the second major pipeline explosion that has rocked Lagos since the beginning of 2020.

It is not exactly clear, at this point, if there were any casualties involved in the explosion. However, it has been confirmed that many houses have been destroyed by the inferno. Eyewitnesses have continued to share images and videos showing the aftermath of the explosion, including this one by Mayowa Olagunju:

Nairametrics also understands that the explosion happened around Bethlehem Girls College in the Abule Ado part of Festac Extension, in Amuwo Odofin

Channels TV also reported that eyewitnesses told correspondents that the explosion happened after a tipper caught fire while offloading a load of sand. The fire reportedly spread to the pipeline, thereby triggering the explosion.

Standard chartered
A single van Lagos State Fire Service was reportedly seen arriving at the scene of the fire hazard, hours after the explosion.
