Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has ordered the opening of the Igando Relief Camp of Lagos State Emergency Management Agency for residents rendered homeless as a result of Sunday night’s pipeline explosion.
The explosion, which led to a fire outbreak, left five persons dead and 10 houses razed.
Public Affairs Officer of LASEMA, Nosa Okunbor, announced that Chairman of Agbado Oke-Odo LCDA, Hon. (Dr.) Adeoye Augustine Arogundade, appealed to the governor to open the camp for displaced people.
