A gas explosion on Tuesday, May 18, rocked the conference hotel on Presidential Boulevard in Abeokuta, capital of the state of Ogun, killing a technician and another person to be identified.
The Nation newspaper reports that the explosion, which took place around noon, left three other people with varying degrees of injury.

According to the report, the injured are re receiving hospital treatment.

A gas explosion has become a very tragic accident in Nigeria, leaving many families in mourning.
According to Research Gate, most gas explosions arise due to the lack of a gas detection instrument in households and gas stations. Even if they are there, they will not be properly serviced to detect a gas leak.
It has also been found that most of the company’s employees do not have the expertise to handle it with gas and household users use gas with a poor attitude and a bad maintenance culture.
In addition, the state governments were accused of not adhering to the master plan of their respective federal states, and therefore building people filling stations almost everywhere they can.
Remember that a gas explosion that took place on Tuesday April 13th hit the government district of Amuwo-Odofin in the state of Lagos, many people were injured.
The incident that occurred at 7:00 pm on Iyasoko Street Agboju in Amuwo-Odofin was organized by the state agency for civil protectionconfirmed in Lagos (LASEMA).
