The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed apprehensions and shock over the strange explosion that rocked a suburb of Akure, Ondo state, injuring many compatriots and destroying numerous houses on Saturday morning.

In a statement signed by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party charged the Federal Government to immediately set up an inter-agency panel to conduct a forensic investigation into the remote and immediate causes of the explosion, particularly the source of the reported explosives and the purpose they were meant to serve.

The PDP insisted that a forensic investigation is imperative given the spate of such explosions in various parts of our country in recent time.

The PDP also demands that the Federal Government should immediately provide palliatives to the victims as well as the communities affected by the blast.

The party called on the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to immediately move in and commence the handling of emergency issues in the area, as well as ensuring adherence to health safety directives, particularly as the nation is still battling with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The PDP commiserates with the victims of the blast while urging Nigerians to continue to be vigilant and prayerful for the safety of lives in our country.
