Fuel Tanker Explodes Near Ecobank Headquarters In Lagos

A fuel tanker, on Tuesday, exploded near Ecobank headquarters, located on Ahmadu Bello way, in the Victoria Island area of Lagos state.

The cause of the explosion could not be ascertained at the time of filing this report.

Efforts by Newbreak.ng to reach Kehinde Adebayo, spokesman of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, LASEMA, proved abortive as his number was unreachable.

Ecobank, however, confirmed the incident on its official Twitter page. The bank said that there was no casualty involved in the accident.

“Thankfully there were no casualties. It was a diesel tanker burning in the Generator area of our head office. Thank you to everyone who said a quiet prayer. Thank you to everyone who wished us well. Thank you to our staff and customers who patiently waited in the safety area,” the bank tweeted.
