Many were feared dead Tuesday night after a gas explosion hit Ajao Estate, less than five kilometres to Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos.
An eyewitness told our correspondent at the scene of the incident that the explosion was caused by cooking gas.
Mangled and dismembered bodies of those that died could be seen in the rubbles left behind by the explosion.
Although the number of those that died could not be ascertained yet, it was learned that four first responders at the scene sustained injuries. Cars and houses nearby were also affected.
