Two die in Nigeria pipeline explosion

Nigerian officials are saying that two people have died and at least 12 others injured after an explosion at an oil pipeline in Lagos.

The authorities are blaming vandals for starting the fire after they were discovered stealing oil.

Thursday’s explosion caused panic in the Ijegun area of the state and firefighters are still trying to put out the flames.

The BBC’s Grace Ekpu has been photographing the aftermath.
