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.
