Big Brother Naija Second Runner up, today, visited the scene of Wednesday’s fire disaster in Onitsha, Anambra state.

Frodd who hails from Anambra state noted that it breaks his heart after seeing the state of things at Ochanja market.

Frodd who was sober said; “Charity begins at home. Indeed it’s a sad period for my people but I indulge you to be strong in this times. God almighty will see us through this period. I indulge Nigerians to reach out to families and friends who were affected. I will be also partnering with foundations to see how we can help our brothers and sisters.”

This is coming after Governor Willie Obiano visited the scene on Thursday morning, promising to compensate the victims before Christmas.

The governor who was at the scene with members of his executive expressed sadness over the incident, assuring that government would not leave them alone in this moment of grief.

Also, in a swift reaction towards the inability of the State Fire Service to respond adequately to the Upper Iweka and Ochanja Market inferno, the Governor has summoned the state fire service chief, Mr Martin Agbili.

The governor also visited the station of the fire service to inspect some of their equipment, saying that his administration would work harder to equip the organization.

The fire chief, Agbili Martin while reacting to enquiries from the governor explained that, “our Firemen were refused access to the Fire scene.

“The efforts made by our sister State, Delta and other individuals like GUO Motors and their Firemen, were not successful as a result of the angry traders, who denied them access to the scene,” he said.
