Just in: Two feared dead in gas explosion at Olusegun Obasanjo Library complex


Two persons reportedly died when a gas exploded within a marque inside Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library complex  in Abeokuta, Ogun State, on Thursday.

This came less than 48 hours after another gas explosion snuffed out lives out of two people at the Conference Hotel, situated directly opposite the OOPL.

The current incident occurred around 11am at the  Marcque event centre located within the expansive Presidential Library complex.

Sources say that technicians were topping up gas into the Air -Condition (AC) when it exploded.

“Two people have already been confirmed dead, ” a worker at OOPL said.

Meanwhile, the two gates leading into OOPL had been shut when this medium got there.

In less than two weeks, no fewer than seven persons had died in different gas explosions across the state.
