Toogun Lauds Aragbiji As Committee Visits Palace
The Chairman ,Special Committee on Fire Safety Matters, Hon Oguntola Mudashiru Toogun has lauded the Aragbiji of Iragbiji, Oba AbdulRasheed Ayotunde Olabomi for leading the campaign against fire disaster in the State.
Hon Toogun made this commendation at the Aragbiji Palace while his committee was on a sensitisation tour to Aragbiji and his council.

He then promised total and unalloyed support for the committee in a bid to achieve zero fire disaster in the State.
Present were the secretary to the committee, Mr Toba Aluko and men of the Fire Service led by the Deputy Director, Mrs Moni Lawal.
