Abule Ado Explosion: Adeola Laments Incessant Incidents, Commiserates With Victims

From Godwin Akomah, Lagos

Senator Solomon Adeola  on Monday decried the occurrence of explosions in the Lagos West  Senatorial district following yet another devastating explosion at Abule-Ado in Amuwo Odofin Local Government  Area of Lagos State.

Adeola who is the All Progressives Congress (APC) Senator representing Lagos West, said the latest explosion has led to loss of lives and multi-million naira losses in terms of properties and infrastructures.

Reacting to the incident which at first count led to the death of over 17 persons with over 50 buildings destroyed and scores injured, the  Senate Committee chairman on Finance commiserated with the families of the dead and other victims of the massive explosion which cause is yet to be ascertained.

In a statement by his Media Adviser, Chief Kayode Odunaro,  Adeola popularly called "Yayi" adviced that serious attention to safety must be put in place across the senatorial district given its dense population and the presence of many establishments with structures and products susceptible to inflammation and explosion.

He commended the valiant efforts of the men of the Lagos State and Federal Government Fire Services, NEMA, LASEMA, Nigerian Navy and Airforce as well as other security forces and ordinary Nigerians for their roles in managing the disaster particularly the rescue of school children.

He urged relevant agencies of government to conduct a thorough forensic investigation on the immediate cause of the explosion, even as he also called on NEMA and the Federal Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development to move into the area to provide relief materials as many constituents have been rendered homeless with many in hospitals.

According to him, the Lagos state government should not be left alone to handle this national disaster.
