Residents and motorists were in panic mode on Tuesday night following suspected explosion from a gas tanker around Toyin Bus Stop in Iju Ishaga area of the state.

According to reports, the incident left 18 shops completely destroyed, fortunately without any reported casualties of death or injuries.

The Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service effectively controlled the fire explosion, mitigating its spread and safeguarding the environment and nearby properties, including a Kerosene Petroleum Filling Station.

According to a statement signed by Margaret Adeseye, the Director of the Service, the incident occurred shortly after 10 pm on Tuesday, on their X (formerly Twitter) handle.

The statement from the fire service attributes the emergency to the off-loading of six 75-50(kg) gas cylinders from a stationary mini truck to a gas shop. An accidental explosion, caused by a compromised head cap of one cylinder, ignited the fire.
