Some residents of a community in Lagos state risked their lives by rushing to a broken pipeline to scoop fuel with different kegs. Some residents of the area have fled their homes while others have continued to scoop fuel from the broken pipeline
Residents of Fagbile Estate, Isheri Ijegun Road, a suburb of Lagos, have fled their homes as a result of a broken petroleum pipe which spilled its content in the area. One of the residents told the News Agency of Nigeria, on condition of anonymity, on Thursday in Lagos that she was woken up by the smell of fuel from the broken pipeline.
According to her, she saw some people carrying fuel in different kegs at  6am when she woke up to prepare food in her shop.
“At 6a.m, when I came out to prepare food, I saw the movement of people from the direction of the broken pipeline carrying kegs and buckets of fuel.
“I became afraid that if the pipe is not repaired, a repeat of the Ijegun fire might occur,” t
he women said.
As of the time of filing this report, movement of commercial motorcycle operators, popularly known as Okada, had been restricted around the area to prevent fire outbreak. We gathered that the pipeline was allegedly broken by vandals in the early hours of Thursday, and the residents are urging concerned authorities to intervene.
