Gas explosion on Thursday rocked the sprawling Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Abeokuta, Ogun State, with two persons feared dead and tens of others panic-stricken.
This is coming about 48 hours after a similar gas explosion occurred in former governor Gbenga Daniel’s Conference Hotel, Abeokuta, located opposite OOPL and leaving two persons, including 300Level student of Tai Solarin University of Education, Olamide Bakare dead.
The Nation learnt that the explosion in OOPL occurred around 11am at the Macque event centre within the Presidential Library.
One of the gas cylinders kept in the event centre exploded, throwing the staff into shock and pandemonium.
Unauthorized person who said he witnessed the incident, said rescuers dashed to the scene shortly after the explosion and evacuated both the dead and the living.
The gates leading to the OOPL facility were seen under lock and key and no official source to confirm or disprove the explosion despite attempts to get such reaction.
