NEWS - Posted on: 16th Mar. 2020 at 3:18PM

Lagos State Gov, Babajide Sanwo-Olu today visited the site of the Gas/Pipeline explosion which occurred yesterday morning at Abule Ado area of Amuwo Odofin LGA. He sympathized with those who lost their properties and lives of loved ones. 

The governor also used the opportunity to set up a N2billion Relief Fund after donating N250 Million on behalf of Lagos State Government. The Deputy Governor is to chair the fund raising. 


He later wrote on his Social Media platforms:

I spent sometime today at the site of the tragic incident at Abule Ado. To give immediate relief and support to the victims of the disaster, I have set up a N2 billion Relief Fund to be chaired by Dr. Obafemi Hamzat. The state government has put in N250m into the fund immediately.

This incident is certainly beyond what government can independently pull off and we will count on your support to contribute to this fund as we work to provide succour for the victims of this unfortunate incident.

Here are the account details for the relief fund...
