Only a section of the Dangote Petroleum Refinery was gutted by the Wednesday’s fire outbreak, the company’s management has said.

Chiejina disclosed that the inferno had been contained, stressing it was a minor incident.

According to the Dangote Industries spokesman, “We have swiftly contained a minor fire incident at our Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP), today Wednesday 26th of June.
