The former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to the explosion in Lagos on Sunday.
He said “There is more” to the explosion “than meets the eye.”
In a tweet on his Twitter handle-@realFFK, he noted that the incident was tragic. “So much destruction and loss of life. Sad,” he said.
He added, “They say it was caused by the explosion of a gas pipeline but I doubt that. Such massive and widespread destruction cannot be caused by a pipeline explosion. There is more to this than meets the eye.”

No fewer than 16 persons were reported killed and over 50 houses destroyed as a result of the explosion.
Among the victims included a father, mother and their two sons, who were on their way to church when the incident happened.
There are still some Nigerians who, like Fani-Kayode, are doubting the report that a gas pipeline explosion caused the tragedy.
Some are calling for a thorough investigation to unravel the real cause of the incident.
