Governor Fashola vows to deal with owner of stored fire crackers

Lagos state Governor, Babatunde Fashola, yesterday visited the site of the boxing day firecracker explosion that razed about 15 buildings and killed an 11 year old boy.  Fashola said he plans to punish the owner of the store on Oko Awo street where the fire crackers were stored.
“In order to make quick business, we have lost a life, we lost property and all of us are in danger. All of these items are under one form of prohibition or the other and we have men and women at our various entry and exit points. How did they get in? How did they enter? Who imported them and who cleared them? Who approved them to come in. Those are very serious issues we must also ask ourselves" Fashola said
Lagos state is one of the states that has banned the use of fire crackers

Medicine after death....one disgusting thing about our leaders is dt when things like this happen, d federal govt (PDP) will point accusing finger at state (ACN or other parties) and vice versa. U can imagine Fashola, at dis stage trying to blame Customs and Ports Authorities for allowing d importation. Pls ask Fashola if he doesn't know dt Jankara fireworks market exist. Yesterday, the Irresponsible NEMA information officer was also blaming Fashola govt for not enforcing Town planning laws on the setback spaces btw houses and the mixing up of residential and commercial uses of land....surely, d NEMA guy is dumb bcos is there no mixed-uses of land? Surely, he was sent to say that. Let our Leaders learn how to take responsibility as they take the national cakes. God bless Naija.... Bjay for Naija

I heard abt this incident yesterday, surprisingly I heard d cause of the explosion was not determined. Lets be sure that we r not being fed with the wrong info. I see this as a clear attempt to douse tension from what might be a bigger problem

It's an accident oga fashola, must you deal with every1?

This knockouts were not smuggled into the country, they were brought in through our ports so if you wanna deal with any1 start from those who allowed them in.

This is a sad thing to happen to the victims. I'm in love with fire crackers during the xmas period but what I don't understand is why someone will store 3 trailers of the crackers in a residential area. It sholuld ave bin stored in a non residential warehouse. The owner shld be found and made to face justice.

Anonymous said...

Well I see beyond Fashola punishing the owner of the store but first dealing with the customs people who allowed the "bangers" to come in, then he should go and sponsor our fire fighters on how to fight fire......as in you point the water to the base of the fire not the top......laughing in idoma. Elaw

Stop being a dumb Fuck. Who told u pipo don't despise knockout?? Cos u played with it as a kid doesn't make it right.It gives some pipo hypertension if u don't know, aside that, with the security situation in the country, its not advisable to go around blowing knockouts.

Nawa for u pipo o. She just innocently asked a question nd u pipo are throwing insults at her. Atleast she didn't assume she knew what it was like some pipo would do. Its u guys that make pipo scared of doing the right thing.

Those items are explosives that are harmful, there are good fireworks out there that can be shot in the sky to display pleasing and amusing reflects instead of the so called "Banger"

Ms ravishing at least u dared to ask to honestly show ur unawareness.Unlike some I too knows... No be human brain like your own create google... See their paralysis mouth, ask google, na banger , na dis, na dat... Shame on the all of you that insulted her... English is not our first language,therefore learn to accomodate for excesses.
For the issue at hand ... Little by little, Nigeria will get there,whereby corruption that causes loss of lives and properties,will be checked immediately. May the boys soul RIP. If banger is prohhibited,There should be provision for exceptions and I'm sure there are authorizations on its use in certain circumstances.In that case anyone found going against these shd be liable.
