Ibadan explosion: ‘Those responsible must be fished out, punished’ – Tinubu

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said that those responsible
for the tragic explosion in Ibadan, Oyo State, on Tuesday must be fished out
and punished.

 

Ajuri Ngelale, the presidential spokesperson, disclosed this
in a statement on Wednesday.

 

Tinubu directed the National Emergency Management Agency,
NEMA, to work with the Oyo State Government to offer immediate and
comprehensive relief to the victims.

 

He commiserated with the government and people of Oyo State
and called on all concerned agencies of government to unravel the circumstances
that led to the tragedy.

 

“It is worrisome that the cause of the blast is being
attributed to the activities of illegal miners. Those behind the inexcusable
and reckless behaviour that has created the conditions for the sad incident to
occur must be fished out and punished,” the President said.

 

The governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde, blamed illegal
miners for the explosion that rocked Dejo Oyelese Street in the Bodija area of
the city around 7 pm on Tuesday.

 

The governor confirmed that two persons died and 77 others
were injured.
