He said distressed alert received by the agency indicated massive leakage of gas pipeline around those areas.
A resident of the area Bayo Ajetunbi told The ICIR that the incident caused panic in the Ikeja area of Lagos this morning.
Agencies of government have, however, brought the gas leakage under control as of the time of this report.
