The death toll in the yet to be determined explosion at Ado Soba, in Abule Ado Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area, Lagos State which occurred on Sunday has increased to 20 from earlier recorded 15, as five more bodies were recovered on Monday from the rubble of the calamitous incident.
Lagos residents, on Monday, turned the site into a kind of tourist centre as they trooped out in their thousands, wailing and lamenting on seeing the level of devastation on properties.
The carcasses of collapsed buildings and wreaked vehicles littered the entire area as armed inter-security personnel cordoned off the place.

Sanwo-Olu, however, on behalf of the state government, announced the donation of a N250 million as capital base for the relief fund.
