No fewer than EIGHTEEN shops were confirmed to have been destroyed in a gas explosion that occurred at Agbado Road in the Toyin area of Ifako Ijaiye Local Government Area of Lagos State late on Tuesday.

The Director, Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service, Margaret Adeseye, gave the update in a statement made available to journalists on Wednesday.

A yet-to-be-ascertained number of shops with goods were destroyed in the fire that occurred when a gas tanker caught fire in the area.

Giving an update on the fire, Adeseye said the explosion was caused by six 75-50 (kg) gas cylinders being unloaded from a mini truck at a gas station explosion:

She added that the fire spread to the opposite side of the street, destroying a total of 18 shops and their contents along with the mini truck.

Adeseye noted that there were no signs of casualties or injuries.
