Hon. Delano as well expressed her gratefulness to His Excellency, Prince Dapo Abiodun MFR, the Ogun State Governor, for the reconstruction work currently on-going in Ijoko/ Alagbole/ Olambe/ Akute/ Berger Road which will avert such occurrences in the future.

Ibrahim Ayokunle Isiaka (MFHR) who sent one of his aides, Chief Mrs. Cecilia Jolaade to the point of the explosion to identify with the victims amongst many others.
