This which has made it four gas related explosions in the capital city in the last seven days with eight people reported dead including a student of the Tai Solarin University of Education.
Aderinokun further said,
“This is another unfortunate incident, the second this week. A government that is sleeping should have been alerted that people are disturbed and some are dying due to the explosions,
“No matter what the problem is, the government should play its role in ensuring standard gas cylinders are in circulation.
“We have lost eight of our people and the government is yet to consistute a panel to investigate the explosions and proffer solutions.
He further charged the Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON) to do more in getting only quality and international-standard cylinders to the market.
