Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara state yesterday commise-rated with members of the Deeper Life Church over the death of five of its members at a retreat in Ilorin on Saturday.
The governor, in a statement in Ilorin by his Chief Press Secretary, Alhaji Abdulwahab Oba, also expressed concern over the spate of bombings in some parts of the country, saying it may be the handiwork of non Nigerians.
Ahmed described the church tragedy as "unfortunate" and pledged that the government would strengthen the machinery to ensure enforcement and compliance with town planning regulations.
He directed the Town Planning Authority to commence immediate assessment of on-going buildings projects across the state, to ensure compliance with town planning rules and regulations.
The governor prayed for the repose of the souls of the deceased and for their families to bear the huge loss.
Five persons had died when a wall collapsed on worshippers who had gathered for an Easter retreat organised by the church.
In his reaction to the recent bomb blasts in Kaduna and Jos, Ahmed condemned the action saying it negates the spirit of love and brotherliness.
The governor expressed doubt about the possibility of Nigerians detonating the series of bombs that were killing innocent lives.
He urged security agencies to monitor the activities of non Nigerians infiltrating into the country and masquerading as Nigerians.
Ahmed noted that bombings would draw back the development of the country and appealed to well meaning Nigerians to strive towards overcoming the prevailing challenges. (NAN)
