Recall that a huge fire explosion rocked the borders of Ado Soba, Abule-Ado, and Amuwo-Odo in Lagos State. The said fire was later reported to have been caused by a truck which ran into a gas processing plant and led to a massive explosion which killed about seventeen people and led to the destruction of many houses and properties.

And so joining the train of those offering their condolences, the former president, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan stated thus via his Twitter account:

…that should not only prevent such sad occurrences in the future but also reassure the victims and their loved ones that their sorrow and harrowing experiences have not been in vain.
