The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on Wednesday said 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.

NAN reports that the gas pipeline was unintentionally ruptured due to road construction activity early on Wednesday.

Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, Acting Zonal Coordinator, South West Zonal Office, NEMA, who confirmed the development in a statement said, “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 after repairs are concluded on the ruptured pipeline.

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