The number of persons killed in Thursday’s gas tanker explosion at the Ogun State Property Investment Company (OPIC) Plaza in Ikeja, Lagos, has risen to five.

Saga Gist had reported that three persons were killed while 13 others suffered varying degrees of injury after a Liquefied Petroleum Gas ( LPG) tanker exploded in front of the plaza.

Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, the Acting Zonal Coordinator, South West Zonal Office, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), confirmed the development to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ikeja, saying three bodies were earlier recovered from the scene of the incident by emergency response agencies.

“Sadly, two persons out of the 13 who were rescued and taken to the Trauma and Burns Centre at Gbagada General Hospital, died a few minutes ago.

“This makes a total of five persons killed in the explosion so far,’’ he said.
