Bomb Explosion In Ikeja, Lagos

The Ikeja bomb blast of January 27, 2002 will forever remain a nightmare for 84 families especially because of the pains and agony they felt as a result of the death of their loved ones.
The compensation that was proposed to be given them by the state government will be paid shortly. At the 10th anniversary of the bomb blast, the state government according to them compensated 70 families out of 154 families and promised to compensate others.

 Recently, the affected group staged a protest at the Lagos state House of Assembly expressing alleged abandonment by the state government. The leader of the group, Comrade Nurudeen Oyegbemi said:
“The truth is that if the government of the day had fulfilled its promise, the problem would not have been compounded. Ten years after the blast, government compensated 70 families out of 154 families that were affected.”
“When we mounted pressure on the state government, we were told that, it was only the 70 families that were recognised and an officer in the Lagos state House of Assembly also confirmed that it was only the 70 families that state government would compensate.
“The then Chief of Staff, now Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola was the one who compiled the names of the 154 families and gave it to the federal government. It was from that list that we got all the names that we also presented to the state government.
“Even the governor himself at the 10th anniversary of the Ikeja bomb blast acknowledged that 70 names have been submitted and that other names are yet to be prepared. On Jan 27, 2014 when the governor was to commission the link bridge in Ejigbo, he made a statement that he was aware of the group that was agitating for non-payment of compensation. That the moment the verification exercise finishes, their money would be paid.
