Lagos Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Gbenga Omotoso, announced on Saturday that the state government would probe the sharing of petrol as souvenirs to guests at a party.
Omotoso disclosed in a statement that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu's attention has been drawn to a viral video showing kegs of petrol being handed out as souvenirs at an event centre.
Recall that WuzupNigeria has earlier reported how Chief Dr Pearl Chidima Ogbulu had given out kegs of fuel during her installation as Erelu Okin of Orile Kemta by His Royal Highness, Oba Tokunbo Okikiola Gbadegeshin Tejuosho on Friday.
Exclusive footages and photographs from the glamourous event have since gone viral on social media platforms and apps.
Omotoso said that there was no doubt that the action was dangerous and could lead to loss of lives and property, and it was against all safety measures in such places.
According to him, the Lagos State Government, through the Safety Commission, is investigating the matter and will ensure that all parties to the reprehensible action are made to account for it.
“The safety of lives and property of Lagosians and visitors remain a top priority to government.
“We, therefore, advise that actions that can lead to loss of lives and property be avoided,’’ Omotoso stated.
