Afenifere demands inquiry into Lagos explosion
The National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere , a pan-Yoruba socio-cultural group, Mr. Yinka Odumakin as called on the relevant authorities to launch an inquiry into the explosion that rocked some satellite towns in Lagos State on Sunday.
Mr. Odumakin made the call on Monday in a brief press statement he personally signed.
The statement reads in full:
Afenifere is distressed by the Lagos explosion that killed unspecified number of people on Sunday and destroyed yet to be enumerated property.
Our hearts go to all the families who are victims of this great tragedy as we pray for the repose of all souls who perished in the sad occurence.
We call for an open inquiry into this incident coming 3 weeks after the Chief of Army staff announced the presence of Boko Haram in Lagos.
The explosion targeting a missionary girls school and the impact of it being felt kilometers from the scene with cars parked at far distance having their windscreens shattered make us to reject the different causes the explosion has been ascribed to without any investigation.
We hold our breath until a forensic investigation is done to ascertain the real cause of this explosion that has left so many families bereaved.
