Ohaa appreciated the efforts of the EFCC staff that were on duty that eventful day for alerting the state fire service promptly, “because, without their prompt distress call, we wouldn’t have responded rapidly”.

“Enugu State Fire & Rescue services has come up to this present level due to the commitment, passion and hard work of the officers and men of the agency and also the enormous support of His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Lawrence Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi who have provided a lot of logistics that has positioned the agency to this enviable height.
