An explosion at a gas processing plant on Sunday killed at least 15 people and destroyed about 50 buildings after a fire broke out in a suburb of Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial capital, emergency services said.
Red Cross operatives at the Abule-Ado explosion site in Lagos have rescued a three-year-old girl unhurt from the rubble of one of the collapsed buildings.
According to Chairman Red Cross Nigeria, Adebowale Kolawole, she was naked when she was rescued under the debris of a building.
He said: “She was recovered naked under one of the collapsed buildings. Later we found out that her mother and sibling were admitted to the hospital.
“The mother who had head injury was semi-conscious. This morning when she asked for her daughter, the doctors told her that she is safe and with the Red Cross.
“Actually that was what we wanted so that the mother would be at rest psychologically, so that it will not add to the pains that the mother is actually going through in order to save her life.
“As soon as possible, we are taking her to go see her mother at the naval hospital. The little girl’s name is Favour and God has favoured her.”
