we can avoid such events

This explosion of the fuel storage tank was really unfortunate. Even though financial loss was high, nobody was hurt during the explosion. I think the authorities should take well care of such fuel storage tanks in the future so that we can avoid such events. how to stop snoring

You are idiot

It is not Malams that should be monitored as you said, pls. Monitor your people that is the Ashawos, 419-ners, kidnappers, Arm Robbers, Riturwalist and their likes.


For crying out loud these explosions and fires are becoming one too many..The mallams should be rigorously monitored, i will not be surprised if they have their sticky IED hands in play here.
