“It is true. It happened around 1 am,” she said.

When asked about the number of casualties, she replied, “I am not in a position to state that. But the explosion is true.”

However, our correspondent could not immediately confirm that as of the time of filing this report.

One of them, @IamHorlapo, posted, “A year ago, we woke up to a gas explosion in Baruwa. Today, it’s another Pipeline explosion in the same Local Government which has claimed life and property. God have mercy upon us in this community.

@iamoliver_may22 added, “Guys, please. My street in Baruwa – Iyana Ipaja – is burning. Guys, please send help to Baruwa… There is a gas explosion and there is a power line in that area.”
