The Lagos State Fire Service which was battling to put off the fire however said the explosion is not connected with the pipeline, but that there are buildings on fire in Ado Soba, Abule-Ado, and Amuwo-Odofin.

A tanker explosion on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, along Otedola bridge axis of Berger, in Lagos in June, 2018 left several persons killed and over 54 cars burnt on the spot.

The Nigerian Police at that time reported that only 9 persons lost their lives, but residents claimed at least 25 persons were killed.
