On 15 May 2008 a pipeline explosion occurred in the community of Ijegun, a suburb north of Lagos, Nigeria. The explosion took place after a bulldozer struck an oil pipeline. The Lagos police have stated that the explosion appears to be an accident, and not the work of thieves, as in past pipeline explosions near Lagos. Construction workers accidentally broke an underground pipeline from which fuel started to spill out; moments later an explosion occurred.

  • Dne 16. května 2008 došlo k výbuchu plynovodu v okolí Ijegun, (předměstí na sever od Lagosu, Nigérie). K výbuchu došlo poté, když buldozer udeřil do ropovodu. Policie v Lagosu uvedla, že výbuch se zdá být nehodou, a ne prací zlodějů, stejně jako další minulé výbuchy v blízkosti Lagosu. Stavební dělníci náhodou přerušili podzemní potrubí, z něhož se začalo lít palivo; za několik okamžiků později došlo k výbuchu. (cs)

Construction workers accidentally broke an underground pipeline from which fuel started to spill out; moments later an explosion occurred. The fire started from the Isolo end of Ijegun, which spread to surrounding homes and schools. It reportedly spread through buildings with occupants inside. The Ijegun Primary School was also damaged. More than 15 homes and more than 20 vehicles were burned in the fire. Firefighters and volunteers used sand and water in attempts to extinguish the fires. Forty minutes after the fire started, NNPC (Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation) firefighters arrived on the scene. The Lagos State Fire Service later arrived. (en)
