He urged security agencies to ensure that those behind the unfortunate incident were brought to justice.

The President urged Nigerians to desist from vandalising pipelines and sensitive installations across the country, adding that such interferences put many lives at risk.

He prayed that God would accept the soul of the departed and comfort their families.

The explosion which occurred in the early hours left two dead, while many vehicles and shops were razed.

Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, the South-West Coordinator of National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), said the fire had been put off with the assistance of specially-trained safety firemen after 17 hours of tedious effort.
