  1. I live in Magodo Brooks Estate and was preparing to leave for the office when the first explosion sounded. All the agencies that came for rescue operation were very prompt to the scene and acted very professionally and efficiently. Special thanks to Federal and Lagos State fire services; they curtailed the fire and prevented it from spreading into Magodo Brooks Estate. My deepest condolences to the families of those that lost their life in the inferno.
