Fire reportedly razes Dangote refinery [VIDEO]

Explosions were heard on Wednesday after a major fire outbreak at the refinery located at Ibeju-Lekki area of Lagos State.

As of the time of filing this report, the Dangote group is yet to react to the fire outbreak.

Recall that Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote had disclosed that he fought and overcame a strong group of local and foreign mafias before establishing the $19 billion refinery.

Dangote said the mafias in the oil sector, who are stronger than those doing drugs did everything they could to sabotage the refinery project.

Speaking at Afreximbank annual meeting and AfriCaribbean Trade and Investment Forum in Bahamas, Dangote he never anticipated that the resistance would be harsh.

Meanwhile, Anambra South Senator, Ifeanyi Ubah, recently said Danote’s refinery will lead to a reduction in the pump price of petroleum products.

Ubah said said when oil refineries in Nigeria start operating at full capacity, the price of fuel will reduce.
