The incident, which happened at about 9 a.m. Sunday, sent residents scampering to safety.
Several houses were affected, including a girls’ Catholic boarding school. It is still unclear if there is any fatality.
When contacted, Nosa Okunbor, the spokesperson of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), said an emergency team was heading to the location of the explosion.
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) was said to have shut down the pipeline and its officials were heading to the scene of the explosion.
We recently reported a pipeline explosion at Eroko road, also in Abule Egba, where not less than three persons lost their lives.
That explosion which happened in January, was as a result of a vandalised NNPC pipeline in Abule Egba, LASEMA said.
