The Lagos state government has sealed Havilah Event Centre, Oniru, in Lagos state over the petrol souvenir episode distributed at the chieftaincy installation of the Erelu Okin of Orile Kemta.
Lagos State Government, through the Lagos Safety Commission, (LSC), and the Rapid Response Squad (RRS), sealed Havillah Event Centre, Oniru, soon after the installation ceremony for Contravening Public Safety Rules.
The newly installed Erelu, Pearl Chidinma Ogbulu, has apologized on her Instagram page, calling her action a “momentarily indiscretion” for bringing fuel souvenirs into the event hall.
Erelu Okin added,
“My intent was just to show appreciation to my guests for turning up at my event at these hard times.”
“I have paused to reflect and truly apologize, and I thank you all for your understanding and criticisms.”
The Lagos state Commissioner of Police, CP. Abiodun Alabi in reaction, has ordered the arrest of persons involved in the distribution of the fuel souvenir.
