Lagos Sues Teenager For Making Plank Call To Fire Service

This was confirmed in a statement released on Tuesday night by Ololade Agboola, the deputy director of public affairs for the Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service.

Ololade claimed that the crime was penalised in accordance with the 2013 Command and Control Centre Law and the Lagos State Fire Service Law.

The statement claims that 18-year-old Solomon called the fire department’s emergency line on Friday, April 14, 2023, at 5:35 p.m. from Harmony Estate in the Ajah region of the state and reported a fire emergency inside the estate, causing emergency procedures to be activated and ultimately resulting in the dispatch of the fire trucks from Lekki Phase II Fire service station.

It read in part, “On arrival, it was discovered that there was no fire incident in the estate. Because of the frequency of such calls in the past, the Estate security helped in the investigation which led to the arrest of the notorious false caller.
