Tinubu Expresses Sadness Over Ibadan Explosion


News Investigators/ President Bola Tinubu has expressed deep sadness over the tragic explosion that rocked Ibadan, the Oyo State capital Tuesday night.

Two persons died in the explosion with no less than 80 others wounded. It also destroyed several buildings, vehicles, and other properties.

“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.

President Tinubu 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 with alacrity.

The President directs the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to work with the Oyo State Government to offer immediate and comprehensive relief to the victims.
