What happened has already happened, whether it was caused by a bomb or gas
Dr. Saleh Jili, Executive Secretary of Kano State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), has stated that it makes no difference whether Tuesday’s explosion was caused by gas or a bomb.
Jili stated this while speaking with Arise News about the Sabon Gari, Fagge Local Government Area of the state, explosion that claimed nine lives and injured many.
Residents in the area are disputing the State Government’s and Police Command’s claims that the explosion was caused by a gas cylinder, claiming that a suicide bomber detonated explosive devices.
SEMA executive secretary Jili, on the other hand, stated that the only thing that mattered was that the incident occurred.
“When the explosion occurred, people were so eager to see what happened that the place became extremely crowded.” There was a building on the verge of collapsing, so we dispatched an excavator to ensure the building did not fall on the general public. So that’s what we were up to,” he explained.
“The building has now collapsed, and whether it is a cylinder or not is no longer our concern.” “Our first priority was to save the people who were trapped inside the collapsed building.”
As a result, the government will now form a committee to thoroughly investigate the cause of the explosion. So it makes no difference whether the welder used an electric or gas cylinder.
The investigation will reveal whether or not he was using electricity. “But all we’re saying is that it’s not a bomb blast.” But, if it’s a bomb blast that has already occurred, what’s the point? Why do people insist it was a bomb explosion? What occurred has already occurred.
Those who were injured were injured. What is the general public’s interest in a gas explosion or a bomb blast? What advantage do we have?” He continued.
