The Special Adviser to the Governor on Commerce, Industry and Cooperative Services, Mr. Olatunji Ifabiyi  gave the assurance  when he visited the scene.

According to the Press Officer  of the Agency, Mr. Samson Omotayo  the  Special Adviser, who was accompanied to the location, by the Permanent Secretary of the Agency, Mr. Sunday Lebi said the management of the agency would look into the case and make proper recommendations to the government in order to forestall reoccurence.

Ifabiyi enjoined the people to be their brother’s keeper by rising up to any occasion when ever such situation occurs.

The Permanent Secretary Mr Sunday Lebi, stated the need for a fire service station to be cited within the industrial park axis due to its  high amount of combustibles.

He urged people to stop burning refuse close to individual homes during the dry season to avoid inflammability of the fire during harmattan season.

Three eye witnesses, Mrs Agbil Alice, Mr Temitope Owoeye, and Mr Fabunmi Ayodele,  attributed  the fire outbreak  to an electricity spark which led to the inferno.

The Managing Director of the furniture company,  Mr Gbadebo Oyefusi regretted that nothing could be done to safe the inferno in spite of people’s effort that rallied round him to salvage the situation.

 He however, solicited for government support to alleviate the situation saying that millions of naira have been lost to the fire outbreak.
