It added that 23 others who were seriously injured, were rescued from the explosion that occurred at Adule Street, Off Ojo Road, in Ajegunle area near Apapa, in Lagos State.

The Director-General (DG) of LASEMA, Dr Olufemi Oke-Osanyintolu, who confirmed the development to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), said that when LASEMA officials arrived at the scene of the incident, they discovered that a gas cylinder store had exploded as a result of gas leakage.

“Our further investigations at the scene revealed that the fire ignited as a result of a phone call by an unidentified resident.

“This spread to other nearby shops and a bungalow behind the shops.
