Recall that Sanwo-Olu had visited the area, begging the public for funds as his government doesn’t have enough to cater for the victims. He thereafter set up funds accounts for the victims, which was said to be managed by his Deputy Hamzat for the victims.
In a new post, however, actress Nkiru Umeh accused the government of being heartless as it did not compensate the victims, despite the loss of so much properties. She added that the Government is traumatising the victims and won’t even let them sell some of the scraps and remnants from the buildings so they could raise some money.Abule Ado Explosion: Nkiru Umeh Blasts Lagos State For Traumatising VictimsAbule Ado Explosion: Nkiru Umeh Blasts Lagos State For Traumatising Victims
After loosing over N200m worth of properties and goods. No compensation from the government. Yet they are heartless enough to be traumatizing the already traumatized residents by showing up to demolish the remains of their buildings and refuse to leave the broken blocks and rods from their own buildings built with their hard work. Why not let the owners of these buildings at least sell these stuffs and make some money. All the properties lost to the Abule ado Festac explosion, no compensation yet.
