Reno Omokri Blames Igbos For Onitsha Fire Disaster As He Sympathizes With Victims

Reno Omokri has reacted to the sad fire incidence which took place in Onitsha yesterday due to an accident involving a petrol tanker.

Reno Omokri, a former aide to Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, says that Igbos should blame themselves for the tanker accident that occurred in Onitsha, Anambra State.

KanyiDaily reported that a fuel tanker laden with substance premium motor spirit (pms) had fallen into a ditch and spilled its contents, resulting in an explosion at MCC bus stop near Toronto Hospital, Upper-Iweka, Onitsha.

An eye witness told NAN that no fewer than five persons including a mother and her child, have died so far in the incident as the fire razed structures, including shops on Upper Iweka road and at Ochanja market.

Reacting, Omokri who is a staunch critic of President Muhammadu Buhari’s adminstration said ‘Ndi’Igbo’ should be blamed for the accident, not Buhari.

He expressed disappointment as to why a fire station isn’t situated in Onitsha Market which is considered the largest in west Africa. He also opined following the popular belief that the Igbos are being marginalized by Buhari, that some marginalizations are self-inflicted.

Reno went on to sympathize with those who lost their lives and properties and called on the government of Anambra state to take responsibility by compensating those affected and building a standard fire station in the market.

Reno also pleaded with President Buhari to compensate the traders who lost their livelihood, saying it will go a long way and show he cares for those from the South East and South-South region.

Meanwhile, the Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano has also sympathized with the victims, and directed all the property owners affected by the explosion, including shop owners, to report themselves.

According to him, the tanker explosion victims are to report themselves at the Conference Room of the Secretary to the State Government on Monday, October 21, 2019, to see how the Anambra State Government can assist them.

President Buhari has also joined other Nigerians in expressing sadness over a tanker explosion that occurred in Onitsha.
