Gas explosion has killed three persons in the Igbore area of Abeokuta South Local Government Area of Ogun State.

The Public Relations Officer of the Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), Babatunde Akinbiyi, confirmed the incident which occurred on Wednesday.

He stated that four other persons sustained injuries from the explosion which occurred in the state capital.

According to an eyewitness, the fire outbreak was caused by the leakage of the hose used in passing refrigerant fluid into a freezer.

Following the leakage, a fire was said to have broken out as a result of a naked fire from another gas cylinder used to fry fish after which emergency responders arrived at the scene.

The seven injured persons who sustained various degrees of burns were taken to the Federal Medical Centre in Abeokuta, by a combined team of men of the fire service and other security agencies.

On the other hand, two female victims – a woman and her daughter – and a male lost their lives to the incident.
