Ikeja bomb blast victims’ families call for assistance

The families of January 27, 2002 Ikeja bomb blast victims have called on the Federal Government  to fulfill the promise it made to them.  The Federal Government had promised to compensate the families and assist the victims children.
Speaking at a press briefing, the coordinator of the families, Mr Olaniran Majekodunmi, said  lack of response by the Federal Government  prompted them to consult their lawyer, Mr Femi Falana, who, in turn, wrote the Ministry of Defence and copied  relevant government agencies and has also written  reminders, but the initiative did  not yielded positive answer. According to him, they were asking for justice for the spilled blood of their relations at Oke- Afa  and other places in Lagos.
