Fire guts Lagos plastic company



Emergency agencies battled for hours on Sunday to put out a fire at Rida National Plastics Limited on Ilupeju Industrial Estate, Mushin, Lagos.

It was gathered that the fire affected the recycling section of the firm and three stores.

PUNCH Metro learnt that the fire, which started around 8am, was brought under control by a combined team of the Lagos State Fire Service, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, and firefighters from neighbouring firms.

Our correspondent gathered that the fire was escalated by the inflammable materials in the company.

The spokesperson for the Lagos State Fire Service, Shakiru Amodu, said firefighters from Ilupeju, Isolo, Alausa, Bolade Oshodi and Ikeja fire stations responded with 60,000 litres of water.

He said, “The cause of the fire has yet to be ascertained, but we were able to curtail it from getting to the factory room.”

The General Manager, Lagos State Fire Service, Adesina Tiamiyu, enjoined firms and residents to take precautionary measures to avert fire incidents.

Efforts to get reactions of the company proved abortive as calls put across to a line on its website indicated that the line was not reachable.


The message sent to the line had yet to be delivered as of press time.

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
