LAGOS, Jan 8 (Reuters) - Nigeria has fully restored the supply of gas on a pipeline affected by a fire last week, a spokesman for the state oil company said on Monday.

Gas supply to several power stations was cut off because of the fire on the Escravos-Lagos Pipeline System near Okada in the southern state of Edo on Wednesday last week.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) owns and operates the gas pipelines which feed power plants in the country's southwest.
