VIDEO: Reactions as Erelu Okin shares five litres of petrol to Owambe guests

It is not unusual to see Owambe organisers sharing souvenirs to guests but the sight of a customised keg of petrol, especially at a period when many Nigerians have turned fuel stations to their second home, set tongues wagging.

Some of the gallons of fuel shared as souvenirs

Reactions have continued to trail the report of how guests invited to the Installation party of Erelu Okin Foundation were each given a gallon of five litres of fuel on Friday.

The Installation ceremony of Chief Dr Pearl Chidima Ogbulu as Erelu Okin of Orile Kemta by His Royal Highness, Oba Tokunbo Okikiola Gbadegeshin Tejuosho, held on 4th March, 2022.

Orile Kemta is a community in Odeda Local Government of Ogun State.

It is not unusual to see Owambe organisers sharing souvenirs to guests but the sight of a customised keg of petrol, especially at a period when many Nigerians have turned fuel stations to their second home, set tongues wagging.

Exclusive footages and photographs from the glamourous event have since gone viral on social media platforms and apps.

The viral video was shared by a netizen, Kehinde Fagbule, via his Twitter handle @ThisIsKennys.

Fagbule, who hilariously disclosed that the content was not groundnut oil as many initially presumed, confirmed that that the customised kegs of petrol were indeed shared as souvenirs at a party that he had attended.

According to him, the Owambe organisers had decided to warm the hearts of their guests by dishing out the fuel.

While some Twitter users drooled and applauded what they called 'innovation' to ease the pain of having to look for fuel after the party, many expressed fear that such highly inflammable content could endanger the lives of guests at the party.

A user identified as Albert Tino Okechukwu tweeted, "I am open for invitation in a party like this. Abeg I need fuel."

Wole Ajani wrote, "E be like say no be this country dem dey before now, awaada kerikeri."

@MondandMonds expressed concerns when he quipped, "Is this the best way to go."

Another netizen, Olamilekan, warned "Make dem sha no burn themselves."

Afolabi Abayomi tweeted, "Wahala for who no attend the party."
