Ibadan explosion: Oyo Govt sets up emergency situation room

The Bodija incident in Ibadan, Nigeria, has prompted the Oyo State Government to take swift action in setting up an Emergency Situation Room. Led by Professor Temitope Alonge, this coordination center aims to streamline the ongoing response efforts.

Search and rescue operations have been underway throughout the night at the site of the incident. The Emergency Situation Room is continuously monitoring the situation and will provide timely updates through official government accounts and media channels. This ensures that the public is well-informed and can stay updated on the latest developments.

Oyo Deputy Governor, Barr. Bayo Lawal, CP Fatai Owoseni (rtd) and other officials of the situation hub.

To ensure efficient communication, the Oyo State Government has also provided contact numbers for the Situation Room. Residents can reach out via 07049948057 and 08147672009 for any related inquiries or information they may have.

In light of the ongoing response operations, residents are strongly advised to steer clear of the incident site. This precautionary measure is essential to facilitate a safe and smooth recovery process. Instead, in case of emergencies within Oyo State, residents are urged to dial 615 free of charge for immediate assistance.

The establishment of the Emergency Situation Room and the ongoing search and rescue efforts demonstrate the government’s commitment to providing prompt and effective response during crisis situations. With the Situation Room overseeing operations and sharing updates, the public can trust that their safety and well-being remain a top priority.
