Residents Panic Over Oil Spill In Isheri-Ikotun, Lagos

By Galaxy - 319 days ago

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

 

One of the residents told reporters, 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.

 

Our correspondent 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.
