He commiserated with families who have lost loved ones in the devastations, while praying for quick recovery for those hospitalized in different parts of the country.
Finally, Ambassador Owotomobi called on both Federal and states government to quickly put an end to the situation on grand while hoping all the culprits will be apprehended and brought to justice in due course through the independent judicial panels being set up by the states’ governors.
