…Commiserates With Victims
Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu has reacted to Sunday’s pipeline fire explosion in Ile-Epo area of Abule-Egba which left five people dead with several properties burnt, vowing that the state government would henceforth show no mercy to vandals.
The explosion, it was gathered, was caused by the activities of pipeline vandals.
The Governor, in a statement on his verified twitter account, commiserated with the victims of the incident, adding that no mercy would be shown to perpetrators.
“My thoughts and prayers are with the families and businesses affected in the unfortunate incident at Abule Egba. We are thankful for the brave members of LASEMA and our fire service that swung into action working all night to reduce the impact. Pipeline Vandals will be shown no mercy.
“We must work together to ensure man made incidents like the pipeline explosion at Abule Egba are avoided. Security and information gathering along volatile corridors will increase and a stronger synergy with communities must happen. We all have a role to play,” he said.
