The primary suspect has been captured and punished for handing out kegs of petrol as souvenirs at a party on Victoria Island’s Havilah Events Centre on March 4, 2022.
The Lagos State administration had previously issued a statement condemning the act, branding it as unsafe and dangerous to human life.
The suspect, Ogbulu Chidinma Pearl, was arraigned on multiple charges of conduct likely to cause a breach of peace, risking human life by distributing flammable matter in a large event, intent to do damage to another, and wrongfully carrying on the business of distributing combustible matter in a large event, according to a statement released by CSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, the state police command’s head of communications.
The lady, on the other hand, was released on bail.
The lawsuit has been postponed until March 24th.
