NNPC Restores Normalcy At Lagos Depot Fire Incident

By Saidu Abubakar

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC) has clarified that the fire incident at a tank farm in Marine Beach, Apapa, Lagos, was at a depot belonging to HOGL Energy Ltd (Honeywell Depot), and not an NNPC Retail Ltd’s facility as wrongly circulated by early responders.

A statement by Olufemi O. Soneye who is the Chief Corporate Communications Officer of the NNPC, the fire, which has since been extinguished, was as a result of petroleum products spillage within the perimeter of the tank farm.

Meanwhile, NNPC and other depots in the area have resumed loading activities.

NNPC has assured that the incident will, in no way, affect petroleum products supply and distribution across the country.
