Lagos State Government reacts to fuel shared as a souvenir at Erelu Okin Celebration
The Installation Ceremony of Chief Dr Pearl Chidima Ogbulu as Erelu Okin of Orile Kemta was held on 4th March, 2022.
Fuel was shared as souvenir to guests at the installation ceremony.
The Lagos government has said it is investigating a viral video showing kegs of fuel handed out as souvenirs at a party in the state.
Gbenga Omotoso, the state Commissioner of Information and Strategy, in a statement on Saturday said it is a blatant disregard for all safety measures.
In the viral video, the party guests were handed litres of petrol at the “Erelu Okin Installation Foundation Party,” according to the sticker.
It was a coronation party of one Chidinma Ogulu, a fashion stylist, as the Erelu Okin of Orile Kemta.
Mr Omotosho said that the action is dangerous and can lead to loss of lives and properties, adding that “all parties to this reprehensible action are made to account for it.”
“The safety of lives and properties of Lagosians and visitors remains a top priority to the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu administration,” the statement reads.
“We, therefore, advise that actions that can lead to loss of lives and properties be avoided.”
