Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has alleged that the truth concerning the Lagos pipeline explosion has been hidden.

According to NNPC, the explosion occurred around 9 a.m on Sunday after a truck hit some gas cylinders in a gas processing plant.

The gas plant was located near the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation’s System 2B pipeline’s right of way.

However, Fani-Kayode said the massive destruction witnessed in Abule Ado could not have been caused by the explosion of a gas pipeline as explained by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation(NNPC).
