Forty Persons Injured In Lagos Fire Cracker Warehouse Inferno by stephenponti(m): 1:27pm On Dec 26, 2012
A fire cracker warehouse today sparked a major fire outbreak in the Jankara area of Lagos.
The massive fire gutted eight houses and injured forty people according to Ibrahim Farinloye, the National Emergency Management Agency spokesperson in Lagos.
Explosions from the "knockouts" caused panic amongst residents of the area.
NEMA said the army, navy and airforce joined in putting out the fire by midday.
 One person reported dead from the fire.

time to put exercise the law on these fireworks

I'm still waiting for the official figures, I know those injured are more, this figure represent those that have been detected so far.

Life lost, accomodation lost, bankruptcy, people injured, irrepairable losses.

Pathetic.

Lesson: Never underestimate the power of a single firecracker, it's even more dangerous when you have a collection of fire crackers.

That's what you get when illiterates handle stuffs like that and throw them without 'sensible' sense. I saw a boy on my street throwing 'banger' under a car which definitely has petrol in it.

They've always been out of control....lol

I think it's time for the givernment to take action to prevent further carnage in the name of firecrackers and knock outs.

I AM EAGER TO HEAR WHAT THE LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENTS WILL SAY. FIREWORKS ARE BANNED FOR IMPORTS, YET THEY GO THROUGH OUR PORTS IN SPITE OF ALL THE CHECKS BY CUSTOMS. THEY ALSO PASS THROUGH ALL THE POLICE CHECKS IN AND AROUND THE PORTS AND WORSE STILL THEY ARE SOLD OPENLY. AND GUESS WHAT, THESE SAME BANGERS ARE BLOWN INSIDE ARMY AND POLICE BARRACKS. EVERYONE IS LAWLESS, LEADERS AND FOLLOWERS ALIKE! WE HAVE TO DECIDE AS A PEOPLE HOW WE WANT TO LIVE. WE HAVE TO DECIDE NOT TO SELF-DESTRUCT. THIS INCIDENT IS NOT NEW, IT HAPPENS VIRTUALLY EVERY YEAR!!

Ninilowo: Ise kii pa mi; ayo lo n paayan! Whats f meaning of this?

Your "Yoruba-spelling" is pathetic! angry angry angry

"Isee kin'pani, Ayo lo npa'niyan"


Literally: Poverty does not kill, it is exuberance that kills"!


True that!.....though not in all cases.

CARELESSNESS and GREED as in this case, even kills more! wink wink

*which "House Landlord rented that place out, for that kind of business? Is there no law that stipulates the kind of "Business" that you can do in certain areas?

*Which kind of Businessman stores "explosives" in a Residential area? Did he made it known (by way of Warning Signs and Posted information on the Warehouse walls), that his warehouse contains dangerous materials?

*What manner of Customs & Excise (I know their Comptroller uses forged Certificates) allows businessmen to import explosives without proper "checks" on storage and disposal? I even understand that the importation of fireworks in BANNED!

*Which manner of Security Agents (Police, SSS, "KAI, LASTMA, Yellow Fever", e.t.c grin ) allowed these toxic products to be transported from the Ports to that warehouse?
I guess each "arm of law enforcement" simply collects its own "Egunje" as the dangerous Cargo transits from Apapa Port to Central Lagos!
If it is to fatally shoot the innocent or protesting students, these outfits will be so trigger-happy
!

Shame on our Security Agents, Shame on their Commanders.


Finally, while celebrating with knockouts and firecrackers is not "The Problem", it is "lack of education, enlightenment and information" on how to "safely store, use and dispose-off the materials without endangering yourself and others"...THAT WE NEED TO FOCUS ON.

Of-course,those found culpable in these fiasco need to be dealt with to serve as a warning and deterrent to others!

But if l know our Government ....SIDON LOOK! wink wink
