Latest Developments Regarding the Bodija Incident: Statement from Seyi Makinde


I commend the diligent efforts of our security agencies in Oyo State, maintaining law and order around Bodija this week.

Kudos to the residents for their compliance with the officers’ directives.

Yesterday, the medical team at the Emergency Operations Centre, alongside the Honourable Commissioner for Health, visited hospitals where victims from the incident were treated.

Over 90% of the victims have been discharged, and the current death toll stands at five persons.

Counselling for incident victims has commenced at the Emergency Operations Centre in Ibadan, led by a clinical psychologist.

Ground Zero operations have shifted from search and rescue to recovery.

A special appreciation goes to the Nigerian Society of Engineers, conducting structural integrity tests on approximately 230 properties near the explosion site. This includes 13 houses within a 50-meter radius, 40 houses at 100 meters, 122 houses at 200 meters, and 53 houses within 250 meters.

We extend our gratitude to Governor Jide Sanwo-Olu for releasing the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) to support us.

Special thanks to Engineer Olatunde Akinsanya, the Director of Operations, for their assistance.

Security agencies are actively investigating the incident, and updates on their progress will be publicized.

Our administration remains dedicated to supporting all victims and ensuring accountability for those responsible.

For any issues related to the Bodija Incident, please contact the Emergency Operations Centre at 07049948057 or 08147672009.
