The explosion that took the lives of 4 persons in Lagos last night has been confirmed not to be an act of terror though the real cause remains unknown after conflicting reports from the Police and the National Emergency Management Authority.
She said, “There is nothing whatsoever suggesting that it was a bomb explosion, it was a tanker loaded with fuel that burst into flames. Policemen are on ground there now and we cannot yet ascertain the casualty figures. But everything is under control.”
However, contradicting the Police, the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, has claimed that the cause of the fire is due to a gas cylinder explosion.
