BREAKING NEWS: Many feared killed as fire guts Ijegun community in Lagos
Emerging reports suggest that a pipeline along Ijegun axis of Ikotun Egbe has exploded, stirring panic within the vicinity, leaving many to scamper for safety.
Footages on social media capture the flames and people running helter-skelter in a bid to avoid being caught up in the flames.
As of the time of filing this report, it was not certain if any casualty had been recorded, there are fears that some may be injured.
More details are expected shortly, as efforts are being made to engage the necessary authorities.
Ijegun, Lagos State is currently on fire due to pipeline vandalism.
I urge everyone living around that vicinity to move to neighboring town for their safety.
