The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alabi, has ordered the arrest of all persons involved in sharing some kegs containing PMS (petrol) as souvenirs in a party.
Recall that the Kegs of petrol were seen handed to guests at the installation of Pearl Chidinma Ogbolu as the Erelu Okin of Orile Kemta at the Havillah Event Place, Oniru, in Lagos

Reacting to this in a statement, CP Alabi, who described the act as regrettable and reprehensible, said that the perpetrators would be apprehended.

“It’s regrettable that in spite of a 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.”

The police boss said that the centre where the distribution of the souvenirs took place has been located and subsequently sealed.
