A gas pipeline explosion in Oduoha, Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State, has created tension in the community.

The pipeline, which passes through the community to a terminal in Bonny, was said to have exploded Tuesday morning.

There was confusion whether the pipeline is owned by the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) or the Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC).


As at 12 noon on Wednesday, gas was still leaking from the ruptured pipe.

Paramount Ruler of Oduoha Chief Ferdinand Ogbuehi said the explosion caused panic and forced many residents to flee.

He said: “From 4am till now, the people have been in fear. The vibration has sent many packing. We are not at rest. We have not seen this type of thing before. We want the government to come and see what is happening.

“We have announced that nobody should go there. We don’t want fire to destroy our community. We want the government to come.”
