A press release by the NNPC spokesperson, Dr. Kennie Obateru, stated that the pipeline break which was caused by a construction company carrying out excavation work in the area resulted in gas leakage which was promptly contained through the efforts of NNPC team, officials from the Lagos State Government, and other stakeholders.

“The impacted section of the pipeline has been isolated and the pipeline depressurised such that it poses no danger to the public,” the Managing Director of the Nigerian Gas Marketing Company, NGMC, a subsidiary of NNPC, Engr. Faruk Usman, was quoted as saying.
