At least two persons have been confirmed dead, while three others sustained severe injuries in a gas explosion at a gas retail shop in Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos State.

The state’s Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, disclosed this in a post on his official X handle on Wednesday.

He said the incident razed down about four shops on Tuesday at the Abule Pan, Lekki Epe Expressway in the Ibeju Lekki area.

The post reads, “It is just a week and we have recorded another gas explosion at a gas retail shop, this time in Ibeju-Lekki.

“Sadly, two persons died, three persons sustained injuries and four shops got razed. Let us prevent avoidable deaths. Let us be safety-conscious at all times”!

This is coming barely one week after a similar incident occurred in the state, where properties were destroyed.

DAILY POST recalls that a pregnant woman and 21 others on May 1, sustained varying degrees of injury in the gas explosion that occurred at the Alayabiagba community in the Ajegunle-Apapa area of the state.
