Gas explosion kills 1, another seriously injured in Obasanjo Library, Abeokuta

A gas explosion at the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library has led to the death of a technician and another with serious injury.

Confirming the incident in a statement issued on Thursday in Abeokuta, Mr Vitalis Ortese, the Managing Director, OOPL Ventures, said the explosion occurred at the main event Marquee during the servicing of the air conditioning units.

Ortese said the incident occurred at 11.00a.m. and the injured technician was immediately taken to the hospital for treatment while the corpse of the dead one was deposited at the morgue.

The official said the emergency team of the library with support from the state fire service had contained the fire arising from the explosion. He said that visitors allowed into the complex were temporarily limited to contain any fallout from the explosion while the fire service put out the fire.

Ortese said that normalcy has, however, been restored after the area was cleared by the fire service. He noted that this was the second incident of an explosion in Abeokuta in the last one week arising from air condition unit and appealed to the authorities to investigate the causes.

TBI Africa reports that a similar incident occurred at the hotel of former Governor Gbenga Daniel’s hotel in Abeokuta barely a week ago.
