President of the Senate, Senator David Mark has commiserated with the government and people of Rivers State over what he described as unfortunate deaths of over 100 citizens in a fuel inferno at Okobe, Ahoada  West local government area of the state on Thursday.

Senator Mark in a condolence message to the Rivers state governor Chief Rotimi Amaechi lamented the loss of precious lives in a circumstance that should ordinarily be handled otherwise.

The President of the  Senate however advised that  adequate measures should be taken to offer medical assistance no matter the cost implication to save the lives of survivors in the hospitals.

He  urged governments at all levels and corporate organizations to help carry out enlightenment programmes  especially in  the handling of sensitive products such as fuel  or corrosives saying that ” what happened in Okobe , Ahoada could be traceable to ignorance because I  do not believe that people would go and embrace death if they knew the consequences.”

Senator Mark implored the governor of Rivers state and the bereaved family to be steadfast  in prayer to bear the irreparable loss.
