Many people were left injured and three died when a gas leakage led to an explosion at a filling station in Lafia, Nasarawa State capital, on Monday, September 10, 2018.

According to a report by The Nation, the explosion happened around 10 am as a result of a gas leakage from Monaco gas refill station located on the premises of Natson petrol station.

An eyewitness reported that the explosion happened after the leakage made contact with the exhaust of commercial motorcyclists in the area, leading to a fire that burnt several vehicles and their occupants.
