BREAKING- Abule-Egba: Nigerians trade blames over NNPC explosion

A cross section of Nigerians have blamed the Lagos government over the explosion of a Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation...
(NNPC) pipeline at Ile Epo axis (near Abule Egba), Alimosho Local Government Area of Lagos State.
The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on Sunday said that two bodies had been recovered from the explosion site.
The raging fire caused panic among the residents of Abule Egba, Ile Epo and Ekoro Road due to the thick smoke which oozed out from the explosion scene.
Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, Acting Coordinator, Lagos Territorial Office, NEMA, Farinloye said that several buildings and articulated vehicles were engulfed in the inferno which happened on Sunday night.
He, however, said the cause of the explosion is yet to be ascertained, adding that emergency responders immediately swung into action after receiving distress calls from some residents of the area.
However, some Nigerians took to their social media pages in disagreement over who to blame for the explosion.
While some blamed the government, others chided Nigerians who vandalize pipelines endangering the lives of others.
Here are some comments gathered by DAILY POST from Twitter;
@Nielo_2wit “Abule Egba is currently on fire because some lazy greedy fools decided to go bust pipeline for personal benefits. We’re our own problem in this country.”
@Fayvhour “That doesn’t give those miscreants the right to endanger the lives of other people. What is wrong is wrong!
@Degoldenhearted “We blame the government for almost everything but we find it difficult to manage those little things the government put in place for us to make our lives better.”
@deejmela “In as much as the government is something else, we can’t try to steal from them and expect them to solve a problem we generated our selfs. I only feel pain for the innocent families affected by this act of illiteracy, done by the same people living around.”
