Lagos Communities Groan Under Gas Flaring

Ajido, Imeke, Araromi and Agemuwo are rustic communities on the bank of the Atlantic Ocean, near Badagry, Lagos. They are areas in dire need of development through the presence of modern infrastructure.

About 170 million standard cubic feet of gas per day (MMscfd) is currently being flared in Ajido, Imeke, Araromi and Agemuwo areas of Badagry Local Council of Lagos State by WAPCo.
