ABEOKUTA - The Aare Ona-Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Otunba Gani Adams has urged the federal government to investigate the recent blasts in some south west states.

Otunba Gani Adams maintained that, the incidences are beyond ordinary blast as claimed by government. 

He stated this on Sunday while reacting to the latest blast in Akure, Ondo state capital, saying that the blasts are suspected to be bomb blast.

He noted that, it was unfortunate such incidences are happening at a time the nation is fighting against the spread of the dreaded coronavirus disease, calling on the South West governors to be at alert and provide adequate security in place to prevent future occurrence in the entire South West region. 

"We are not convinced that, all these are ordinary blast, but a bomb and therefore it is important and necessary for government to carry out proactive investigation on these incidents which occurred in spate of three weeks in Lagos, Ekiti and Ondo States", Adams declared.

Adams buttressing his claim, with Lagos blast,  said from records, a pipeline fire is expected to burn houses, and not uprooting houses from foundation as it occurred in Lagos, adding that, in view of that, it was beyond pipeline bust, but bomb blast.

He also posited that, the Ekiti incident was of same pattern, which should not be attributed to ordinary blast, stressing that the incidences are becoming rampant in South-West, and therefore need for government not to fold it's arm, before it get out of hand.

"I was at the Lagos incident, and I am not convince that, it's  not ordinary pipeline fire. From history if there is pipeline incident, fire will only consume building,destroy properties and not pulling down buildings to it's foundation. Also on the Ondo State incident, we are not convince of the commissioner of police submission.

"South-West Governors should be vigilant. Information at our disposal has it that, other South-West are the next target. Federal government should diligently investigate the incidences", Adams declared
