The students from Bethlehem Girls Secondary School are one of the victims of the pipeline explosion that rocked Abule Ado close to Festac area of Lagos State on Sunday morning.
The girl’s boarding school which is located in Abule Ado was completely destroyed and many students injured due to the explosion.
The number of casualties and damaged properties could not be ascertained as at press time as men of the federal fire service had mobilised to the scene.
Videos circulating the social media shows how Bethlehem Girls were whisked away over the fence after the explosion, and many of the students are yet to get over the shock.

I just read that Bethlehem College, Abule ado is a boarding school with kids now injured in the pipeline explosion in Lagos. It’s sad that we keep writing about reoccurring preventable tragedies. It’s unforgivable for our kids to pay for our inefficienciespic.twitter.com/MJyezSRUoC
