The State Commissioner for information and strategy, Mr Gbenga Omotosho in a statement on Saturday, confirmed the investigation into the matter, β€œThe attention of the Lagos State Government has been drawn to a video showing kegs of petrol being handed out as souvenirs at an event Centre in Lagos. The video has gone viral on social media. There is no doubt that this action is dangerous and can lead to loss of lives and property. It is blatantly against all safety measures in such places. The Lagos State Government through the Safety Commission is investigating this matter and will ensure that all parties to this reprehensible action are made to account for it. The safety of lives and properties of Lagosians and visitors remains a top priority to the Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu administration. We, therefore, advise that actions that can lead to loss of lives and properties be avoided.”
