One person was feared dead, while two others were seriously injured in a gas explosion that occurred in Ijebu-Ode area of Ogun state on Monday morning.

Saga Gist gathered that the incident happened around 8am along Folagbade road, Ijebu-Ode.

The explosion, it was learnt, involved a tricycle, three motorcycles and a Honda SUV.

According to an eyewitness, the explosion was caused by a gas cylinder belonging to one of the occupants of the tricycle.

The eyewitness explained that the rider of the tricycle, which was conveying three occupants, was parked

by the road side, when the owner of the cylinder discovered that gas was leaking from the cylinder.

He said the tricycle was parked near a faulty car with a radiator problem.

The source explained further that, the occupant, in an attempt to fix the leaking cylinder, alighted from the tricycle, adding that the explosion was triggered by the heat which emanated from the car whose bonnet was opened.

It was disclosed that the accident involved three people, adding that one of the victims was badly injured.

“The owner of the cylinder had just refilled it with gas and unknown to her, the cylinder was leaking.

“The rider of the tricycle parked by the roadside for the woman to fix the leaking cylinder, but unfortunately, there was a car with a radiator problem parked nearby.

“The heat generated by the car triggered the explosion,” he said.

According to him, the victims who suffered third degree burns were rushed to a hospital within the ancient city.

The Public Relations Officer (PRO), Mr. Babatunde Akinbiyi confirmed the accident, disclosing that the tricycle, three motorcycles and a car were burnt.

He added that the occupants of the tricycle also suffered severe injuries and were taken to the hospital for treatment.

Akinbiyi, however, disclosed that he could not ascertain if anyone died in the explosion.
