President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with families who lost their loved ones in an inferno in Ijegun, Lagos State, on Thursday.


In a statement issued on Friday morning, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina said: “The President Buhari condoles with people and government of Lagos over the fire disaster that claimed lives and property.”

He urged security agencies to ensure that those behind the unfortunate incident are brought to justice.


The President calls on all Nigerians to avoid tampering with pipelines and sensitive installations across the country, admonishing that such interferences put many lives at risk.


He prays that God will accept the soul of the departed and comfort their families.
