Not less than 25 people where burnt death including Kogi poly students and primary skul pupil in a Tanker Explosion, and for more than 1hr no fire service within d state capital metropolis was there to put off d fire, I wonder if Nigeria is even a Country with major emphasis on Kogi State. If I have my way, I will personal take d corpses to govt house let them eat them, since dey can't fix road and provide a functioning fire Service.
God have mercy, may we not found death even as we pursue our daily bread."
