A gas plant has exploded near the international headquarters of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) in the Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of Ogun State.

According to information obtained by correspondents, the explosion caused panic among locals in the Mowe neighbourhood. Although not owned by RCCG, the gas plant was near to the Redemption Camp.

In a conversation with reporters on Monday afternoon, the LASEMA spokeswoman, Nosa Okunbor, verified the explosion.

“The gas explosion occurred right in front of Redeemed’s front entrance. Interestingly, the item is only by it and not held by Redeemed, according to Okunbor. It is near a gas station in a densely populated neighbourhood.

According to LASEMA, the fire initially erupted from one of the cylinders before spreading to the two other stationed trucks. The trucks and the damaged cylinders, according to the statement, were dampened to reduce the possibility of a secondary incident. The absence of any recorded casualties or injuries was also highlighted by LASEMA.
