An Armed Robbery attack occurred this morning on Ebute Road, Ogolonto bus-stop in Ikorodu, Lagos State.
An eyewitness who spoke to Channels Television during the News said she saw at least four men who were not wearing masks loading money into a Sienna van on the road as the robbery was going on, where commercial banks are located.
Gunshots were ongoing while she was giving her account to Channels Television, meanwhile police have arrived at the scene.
On Twitter, the Nigeria Police Force said officers have responded to robbery saying:
The Kaduna Refining and Petrochemical Company limited (KRPC) has denied reports that a fire outbreak, which occurred on Thursday at the tanker loading area near the refinery, affected production and distribution of petroleum products.
He said the incident did not happen inside the refinery.
KRPC Manager, Public Affairs, Mr Abdullahi Idris, told Channels Television in a telephone interview that the fire, which gutted two tankers and injured two persons, was swiftly controlled by fire fighters.
“Production and distribution of petroleum products from the refinery was not affected by the development. The park where the fire incident occurred was some distance away from the refinery complex and so did not affect the operations of the refinery in anyway,” he said.
Mr Idris however said the management of the refinery had commenced investigation to determine the cause of the inferno with a view to averting a future re-occurrence.
An eyewitness said that some people were seen scooping petrol from a damaged tanker parked at the depot when it suddenly caught fire and spread to the next one. The eyewitness said the fire was, however, contained in less than 30 minutes.
