Nollywood actress Nkiru Umeh took to social media to blast the Federal Government after some alleged government officials asked for a bribe instead of compensating them.
Áccording to her, the Nigerian government have refused to compensate people who lost their lives and properties to the explosion.
She wrote on social media;
“After losing over N200m worth of properties and goods. No compensation from the government. Yet they are heartless enough to be traumatizing the already traumatized residents by showing up to demolish the remains of their buildings and refuse to leave the broken blocks and rods from their own buildings built with their hard work.
”Why not let the owners of these buildings at least sell these stuff and make some money. All the properties lost to the Abule ado Festac explosion, no compensation yet. Then stop disturbing them with your bulldozers damn it.
”Imagine negotiating with a government official on how much to pay for you to leave the remains of blocks and rods from your own building. They demolish and sell it all. That’s the business that has been going on in Abule ado Festac.
”The owners of the buildings didn’t even get to sell even broken blocks from their buildings. They sold it all yet no compensation to anyone. Your pipeline freaking destroyed peoples properties. I weep for this country.”
It can be recalled that she revealed sometime in March, 2020 that she lost her cars, house and beauty complex were lost to the Abule Ado explosion. She wrote at that time;
“My beauty complex and my house were directly opposite Bethlehem girls college and the explosion happened right in front of the school. Everything went down. I thank God for life.
“Still in shock to even talk but my anger is that the media houses and the government are lying to the public. All the same, It is well. I will narrate on this more when am out of shock.
“For now my hands are still shaking. God just showed me how special I am. How he loves my family, yes I lost 2 houses, 2 cars, all properties, cloths, shoes, AngelNikky Cosmetics goods worth close to 10m.
“My beauty complex and everything inside worth close to 50m and of course my resident mansion and properties inside which only myself and whoever have been to my house can tell how beautiful it was. Should we talk about my closet?
“If you know AngelNikky you can imagine AngelNikky’s closet. Fire took it. All it is well is what I can say because I have my life, my husband, my children, my PA, my husband’s boys, we are all alive.
“By the grace of God, material things can be replaced. No one can replace life. Gratitude to God remains my attitude.”
