Following reports of an explosion in a beer parlour along L & K Road, in Oworonsoki area of Lagos, the police has issued an official statement.

 

Sun Newspaper reports that the Lagos State Commis­sioner of Police, Mr Fatai Owoseni however said "it was not a serious issue as people were made to be­lieve. Lagos did not record any explosion today as be­ing erroneously circulated. Rather it was a minor fire incident that occurred at L&K bus stop Oworo road where a wine shop went up in flames caused by a leaking refrigerator gas cylinder. No causality was recorded."

Adding that “People were just pan­icking because of the loud bang. We have to quickly deploy Anti Bomb Squad to the Place just to assure the people that we are al­ways ready incase of any eventuality. It was a minor incident. It was not explo­sive from bomb. The Police have taken over the Place to forestall hoodlums from hijacking the situation to unleash mayhem on inno­cent citizens. I want every­body not to panic but to go about their normal duties as the Police are always on ground incase of any even­tuality. Once again, it was not a bomb explosion but from a refrigerator’s cylin­der.”
