Uzuokwu Solomon in trouble over prank call to Lagos Fire Service



The Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service on Wednesday 19th, April arraigned one Uzuokwu Solomon at the Ogba Magistrate Court.

The Court presided over by Magistrate Bambo Oduoke committed him to be remanded and adjourned to Thursday, April 27, 2023.

This follows the State Prosecutor, A. A. Asiwaju’s presentation of the culprit for a plea to which he pleaded guilty.

Addressing Journalists after the Court session, the Director of Lagos State Fire and Rescue Service, Mrs. Margaret Adeseye expressed her happiness in the prosecution of the culprit and reiterated the stand of the State government on malicious false calls which is punishable under the Lagos State Laws. She believes that the arraignment will serve as a deterrent to other misguided citizens who are in the habit of making false calls and misleading emergency responders.
She also pleaded with the residents of the State concerning the attacks on Firefighters at the scene of an emergency. She asked for them to give way whenever Firefighters are on the way to an emergency as well as support them while at emergency scenes and desist from making prank calls.

On the part of the Special Adviser to the Governor on Special Duties and Inter-governmental Relations, Mr. Mobolaji Ogunlende, who was also present at the Court.
He likewise expressed his delight in the arraignment of the culprit stating that the State Government frowns at malicious false calls which endanger the lives of Firefighters, reduce the lifespan and effectiveness of Firefighting equipment, and also wastage of the State’s resources. He believes that the arraignment will serve as a warning for others that the State Government is out to enforce the Law and will take all false call cases to a conclusive end.

Uzuokwu had reportedly placed a call on Friday, April 14, 2023, at 17:35 hours to Harmony Estate, Langbasa, Ajah, Lagos, and reported a Fire emergency within the estate leading to the dispatch of the Lekki Phase II fire Service Station.
