At  least seven  people lost their lives on Monday after gas explosions rocked the Ikosi Isheri and Badagry areas of Lagos State.

While two people died after a gas leakage triggered an explosion in a gas plant on CMD Road, Ikosi Isheri, five residents were killed after a gas transload went awry in a retail shop in Ajara, Badagry.

PUNCH Metro gathered that Ikosi Isheri explosion occurred around 7.30am in a gas plant, Second Coming Nigeria Limited.

Aside from the two people who were burnt beyond recognition, eight others reportedly suffered varying degrees of burns.

Our correspondent gathered that there had been a gas leakage in the plant and while officials of the Lagos State Fire Service were assisting to fix the problem, the exhaust pipe of a speeding vehicle triggered an explosion.

Workers of the company, together with a firefighter, were said to have been thrown off by the impact of the explosion, as the fire consumed equipment and installations in the facility.

The inferno destroyed three gas reservoir tanks, a 33,000-litre gas truck, the administrative block of the plant, generators, gas cylinders and other equipment.
