“While I share the pains and feelings of families of injured victims, it is imperative that thorough investigations and probe are carried out to unearth the possible cause (s) of the unfortunate incidence”.

According to Enabulele, “It was with extreme sadness that I received the news of the recent ‘gas’ explosions in Ibadan, around the Bodija area of the city”.

The former President of the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) and a past President of Commonwealth Medical Association (CMA), equally tasked doctors in Oyo State to commence emergency care to all the affected.

Enabulele noted that physicians, under the aegis of the Nigerian Medical Association, Oyo State, show solidarity by providing emergency care to all the injured victims.

“It is in this light that I commend the leadership of Oyo State branch of NMA, for urging colleagues around the Bodija axis to make themselves available”, said Enabulele.

“Beyond provision of emergency care, physicians, as critical stakeholders under the aegis of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), as well as other stakeholders, need to be involved in the process of investigations, particularly as it concerns the handling of HIAs and other matters, and the implementation of the outcomes/reports.

“This is one way, amongst others, to avoid a recurrence”, Enabulele advised.

Enabulele sympathised with the government of Oyo State, Oyo State NMA and condoles as well the families of victims affected by the unfortunate incident.
