CP orders arrest of celebrant, other people distributing Petrol as Souvenir at party
Lagos State Police Command has reacted to a viral video on the social media in which some individuals and organisers of an event in Lagos were seen giving out some kegs containing PMS (petrol) as souvenirs.
The reaction was contained in a statement by Command’s Spokesman CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu Saturday evening.
The statement reads in parts, “It’s regrettable that in spite of series of warnings and sensitisations carried out by the Police and other relevant government agencies, some individuals could be handling such combustible substance in a public place in total disregard to safety of lives and properties”.
“Still concerned about the safety, and protection of lives and properties of citizens, the Lagos State Police Command once again appeals to citizens to avoid this kind of condemnable act in the name of generosity”.
“Although the event centre where the distribution of the souvenirs took place has been located and subsequently sealed, the Commissioner of Police, CP Abiodun Alabi, fdc, mnim, has in addition, ordered the arrest of all persons involved in this regrettable and reprehensible act”.
