Fire guts NNPC Depot in Ibadan

An inferno has consumed a section of the Nigerian Pipelines and Storage Company Limited, a subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Apata, Ibadan.

According to an official of the corporation, the incident occurred in the loading section of the depot.
The fire incident caused traffic gridlock around the Odo-Ona-Apata Road and Bembo-Government College Area.

The Apata depot of the NNPC was re-commissioned in October 2017 after long neglect.

The NNPC explained later that it was a minor fire incident involving some fuel trucks at the loading bay.
