The plant went up in flames in the early hours of Monday.

Most of the casualties were workers in the gas plant and there are fears that more people could still be trapped in the fire.

This is because there was no headcount after the fire broke out as most people scampered for safety immediately.

The fire was reportedly caused by a leakage in the truck supplying the gas plant.

Officials of Lagos State Fire Service are currently battling to put out the flames.
