Sanwo-Olu sympathises with Akere market fire victims

By Florence Onuegbu, Lagos.


Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has commiserated with traders who lost their wares in Wednesday’s fire at Akere Spare Parts Market in Olodi Apapa, Ajeromi Ifelodun Local Government Area of the state.


The governor, in a statement issued by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Gbenga Omotoso, expressed shock at the incident.


Sanwo-Olu said that he genuinely shared the grief of the victims, hence, had ordered a probe into the fire, which emergency workers had put out.


He urged the residents of the state to desist from attributing the unfortunate incident to any political party or its agents.


“Those who are struggling to make political gains from the incident are being mischievous.


“It is shameful to take advantage of the misfortune of others to feather some political nests,” Sanwo-Olu added.
