Gas Explosion did not Affect Redemption Camp- Church Explains

A gas plant reportedly exploded in the early hours of Monday around the main gate of Redemption City.

According to a statement released by the Redeemed Christian Church of God(RCCG), the explosion only rocked the gas plant, and didn’t extend to the Camp grounds.

This goes against reports making the rounds that the explosion affected the camp ground.

Fire fighters put out the fire.

In a statement titled ‘Explosion not in Redemption City,’ released by the Church shortly after the incident went public, members of the public have been urged to stay calm.

The statement read, “The leadership of the Redeemed Christian Church of God wishes to empathize with the people involved in the unfortunate gas explosion that occurred in the early hours of Monday, August 29, 2022.”

“This incident which has been brought under control by the combined efforts of the RCCG Fire Service and Lagos State Fire Service occurred inside Axella Gas depot on the Sagamu-bound traffic between the Car Park C gate and the main gate of the Redemption City.”

“Against the news making the round, the incident was completely outside of the Redemption City and our fire service team only responded as part of our community service support to our neighbours within the environ. We thank God the incident has been put under control.”
