Two persons were feared dead in an explosion on Thursday at the Marque event centre, Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) complex, Abeokuta.
A staff of the OOPL, who pleaded anonymity, said the explosion occurred when technicians were topping up gas into the Air Condition (AC) at the event centre.
“Two people have already been confirmed dead,” the staff said.
During a visit to the scene, men of the Anti-Bomb squad of the Ogun Police Command were seen combing the place.
The AUTHORITY reports that a similar incident had occurred on Tuesday, when two people died in a gas explosion at the Conference Hotel on Presidential Boulevard, Abeokuta, owned by Chief Gbenga Daniel, a former governor of the state.
