Kogi State Deputy Governor, Mr. Yomi Awoniyi, has hinted that no member of his family was affected by the gas explosion which occurred at his Dolphin Estate residence in Lagos. The incident took place in the early hours of Saturday.
His Chief Press Secretary, Michael Abuh, said yesterday that Awoniyi was not in Lagos at the time of the explosion, adding that his wife, Mrs. Awoniyi and her mother, who were in the building at the time of the explosion, survived the blast.
In a statement made available to journalists in Lokoja yesterday, he said that though Mrs. Awoniyi and her mother “visited” the hospital after the explosion, they had since returned home after due medical consultation.
Awoniyi said that a domestic worker who received some degrees of burns from the explosion and the driver who was hit by part of the debris of the building were in stable condition and responding to treatment.
Nigerian Pilot recalls that an explosion, which was allegedly caused by a leakage from a cooking gas cylinder, occurred at about 7.15am on Saturday at the Dolphin Estate residence of the Awoniyi’s residence.
