On Sunday, March 15, an explosion rocked Abule Ado, Amuwo Odofin local government area of Lagos state. The explosion was widespread as it hit schools, houses and office complexes, leaving 17 dead and many injured.
Lagos state governor, Babjide Sanwo-olu visited the site for on-the-spot assessment of the situation, then he made a pledge to set up a 2 billion naira relief fund for the victims.
However, he decried the Lagos state government’s inability to solely raise the funds, hence his decision to call on well meaning Nigerians to donate to the cause.
A day after making the pledge, the governor revealed that N250 million has been pumped into the fund as he released bank details to which well-meaning donors will deposit the remaining N1.75 billion for the victims of the Abule Ado explosion.
But Nigerian musician, Falz who believes that the state is financially buoyant enough to come up with the 2 billion naira called it a joke.
Falz, taking to his social media, wrote: “What kind of joke is this? Who are you asking to donate?”
