No fewer than two persons were reportedly killed when a gas exploded within the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) in Abeokuta, Ogun State, on Thursday morning.

The library is not far from Conference Hotel, owned by a former governor of the state, Gbenga Daniel, where a gas explosion killed four persons two days ago.

According to Daily Trust, the explosion at the library occurred around 11am at the Marcque event centre within the facility.

“Two people have already been confirmed dead,” a worker at the library told Daily Trust.

It was also learnt that seurity guards at the gate turned visitors back, as only the truck of the State Fire Service and some officials were allowed into the premises.
