The South West Coordinator, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Mr. Ibrahim Farinloye has confirmed that there was an explosion inside a locked beer parlour that is yet to open Sunday at L&K Street, Oworonsoki, inward Mayaki, Lagos State.
He said four people including a girl were injured and had been rushed to Afolabi Hospital for treatment.
“Fire service and police are trying to find out the cause of the explosion as the shop was locked at the time of explosion.
“Crowds are greatly impeding emergency works.
“We call on the crowd to leave the area entirely. The explosion partly affected a building next to the beer parlour. The partly affected collapsed building do not pose any danger to the people, ” he said.
