How Did He Know They Were Illegal Miners? – Sowore Threw 7 Posers At Seyi Makinde On Ibadan Explosion



The candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria, Omoyele Sowore has threw seven posers at the Governor of Oyo State, Seyi Makinde and Security agencies, regarding the explosion in Ibadan on Tuesday night.

Sowore, who queried the rationale behind the Governor going on air to declare the incident as the handiwork of illegal miners without investigation, urged the Department of State Service (DSS) to release their findings on the explosion.

The Sahara Reporters founder who posted the posers on his Facebook profile on Wednesday, alleged that there are more to the quick disclosure of the elements allegedly behind the explosion by Governor Makinde.

Below are the 7 posers threw at Makinde by Sowore:

  1. Even in developed countries, it takes nothing less than 48 hours before government agencies make a categorical statement about such a massive explosion. These include cordoning off the area, obtaining evidence on the scene, and analyzing it before telling the public what exactly happened.
  2. In less than 10 hours, Governor Seyi Makinde already “investigated” the incident and submitted it was “Illegal Miners.” Who are the illegal miners? What do they mine, and why are they in possession of such powerful explosives?
  3. Is there any explosives dealer known to security agencies in a high-brow neighborhood in Ibadan that the govt had long been aware of and did nothing about?
  4. Again, who is that miner? What is the miner’s name, and what do they mine in Oyo state? Is it gold, silver, cobalt, uranium, or what? A release should be done immediately to reveal the identity of the miner!
  5. Mining and using explosives has a procedure and rarely explodes without a trigger, especially dynamite. You have to ignite it automatedly or use fire. Was the building rigged with explosives? If so, why so?
  6. Is the governor or Oyo state government aware of mining in Agodi residential area? Is the governor aware of it, or is his or the state carrying out rock blasting in a residential area?
  7. The DSS is saddled with approving the use of explosives around Nigeria. What is their public position on what happened? At least citizens need a preliminary report from the DSS on this matter immediately.

Precision Online Newspaper reports that the heavy explosion on Tuesday evening were felt at some popular areas in Ibadan, which led to panic among the residents.

Two people were reportedly dead after the explosion, while over 70 persons were also injured.
