Bishop of Awka Anglican Diocese, Archbishop Chibuzor Alexander Ibezim has consoled the victims of the recent gas explosion that rocked Lagos earlier in the week.
Archbishop Ibezim made his views known in a press statement made available in Awka.
“The news of the explosion took me aback as I am pained such could still happen to our people in this century.
“I commiserate with Catholic Archdiocese of Lagos, Archbishop Alfred Martins for the disaster at Bethlehem Girls College, Abule Ado , Amuwo Odofin Lagos for losing the Education Director, Administrator of the school and some students who died in the unfortunate fire incident.
“I commiserate with other Churches of Christ affected by the inferno after the blast, the government and people of Lagos State as well as with families and relations of those who lost their lives, and property in the fire incident. May God console you all in Jesus name. Amen.”
Recall that the gas explosion in the Nigeria’s commercial capital Lagos killed no fewer than 15 people, injured many more and destroyed about 50 buildings and 50 cars. The blast happened at around 8:00 am within the residential district of Abule Ado. Houses, Lorries, cars and motorbikes were also torched in the blast.
