The Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has directed the opening of the Igando Relief Camp which is managed by the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA).


This is in view of the disaster resulting from the Abule-Egba pipeline vandalization and subsequent explosion of Sunday 19th January, 2020.


A statement signed by LASEMA’s Public Affairs Officer, Mr. Nosa Okunbor said the Governor’s directive was in response to the request of the Chairman of Agbado Oke-Odo LCDA, Honorable (Dr.) Adeoye Augustine Arogundade.


Governor Sanwo-Olu’s directive that the Igando Relief Camp of LASEMA be opened will ensure that about three hundred Internally Displaced Persons/victims will be fully taken care of with and with immediate effect on the bill of the Lagos State Government.


In a related development, Mr. Bosun Ogunkolade has been appointed Head of Special Duties and Camp Commandant over LASEMA Relief Camps to oversee the affairs and welfare of the about three hundred Internally Displaced Persons from the Abule Egba/Ile Epo pipeline explosion.


He resumes duty with immediate effect.
