The National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, says on Wednesday that the gas pipeline leakage which occurred at Magboro in Ogun has been stopped.

The agency said the Lagos-Ibadan expressway has also been reopened to commuters plying the road.

Ibrahim Farinloye, Acting Zonal Coordinator, South West Zonal Office, NEMA, confirmed the development in a statement he issued in Lagos.

“The gas leakage has stopped about two hours ago and traffic has been open for commuters.

“However, supplies of liquefied petroleum gas, LPG, into Lagos will commence immediately repairs are concluded on the ruptured pipeline.

“The Nigerian Gas Marketing Company has mobilised specialists to commence repair work,” he said.
