There has been a strange Nigeria beach fire outbreak at Ilesa Ilashe, Lagos this week. The mysterious incident which occurred on Tuesday 25th, 2021 has left many Nigerian s with lots of unanswered questions.
The viral video of ocean fire in Nigeria that appears on social media shows how the Ilashe sea was engulfed in fire and smoke.
Cause of Lagos beach fire
People have asked what is the cause of this burning ocean water in Nigeria? Reacting to the incident, some Nigerians said the reason the Ilashe beach caught fire could be a pipeline explosion. Some people said the goddess of the Ilesha sea is angry.
But according to a Twitter user @onenaijaboi, the Lagos beach fire outbreak is an underwater movement of the earth’s tectonic plates causing a rapid increase in temperature and resulting burst of underwater molten magma.
