NEMA sympathises with victims of infernos

08 January 2016, 16:58

Abuja - The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has decried the incessant fire incidents that have resulted in loss of lives and destruction of properties around the country.

NEMA Senior Information Officer, Sani Datti, sympathised with victims of the incidents.

He called on the affected state governments and people to observe national fire safety code to prevent the recurrences.

Datti explained the surge in such incidents.

“It has been observed over the years that the incidence of fire and its intensity of damage and losses are exacerbated by the Harmattan season and public should be safety conscious,” Sidi said.

He stressed it was important for everyone to acquire safety information in respect of fire outbreaks.

Recently, there were reported cases of fire outbreaks in Sokoto, Kano, Kaduna, Gashua, Ibadan, Warri, Minna, Yola, Jos, Ado Ekiti, Lagos, and gas explosions in Port Harcourt and Nnewi, Anambra State.
