Party Petrol Souvenir: I have reported myself to Police – Erelu Okin
The Erelu Okin of Orile Kemta, Pearl Chidinma Ogbolu, who distributed petrol souvenirs to guest during her recent coronation in Lagos, has reported herself at the state police command.
She made this known while apologising on her official Instagram page on Tuesday.
The command headquarters had invited her for questioning when a video showing the petrol souvenirs distributed during her recent coronation surfaced online last week.
While the videos received widespread condemnation from Nigerians online, the Erelu said her intention was to show appreciation to her guests “for turning up at the event at these hard times.”
The Lagos state government already sealed Havilah Events Centre in Oniru for contravening public safety rules.
But in an Instagram post revealing her meeting with the police on Tuesday, Ogbolu apologized for the controversial act.
She said: “I have ‘reported’ myself to the police this morning. My intent is to help with their investigation of the unfortunate incident.
“I am thankful that my error in judgment has not caused damage and I plead with you all not throw the baby away with the dirty water.
“I am sorry and my intent was never to endanger anyone or abuse your sensibilities. Do not destroy me because of my unintentional error. I have come to regret my error
“I intend to focus on safety and security and will put my energy on ensuring that my community works include safety and security,” she said.
The Erelu further disclosed that she personally delivered an apology letter to the office of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
