8 Jul 2024


I received with a heavy heart the news of the unfortunate incident that occurred on Monday morning in Jattu market, Etsako West Local Government Area of the State, where about four lives were allegedly lost due to fallen trees caused by a heavy downpour.

The incident is deeply saddening and I extend heartfelt condolences to the victims and families affected by the very tragic incident.

Emergency response teams have since been deployed to manage the situation and provide support and assistance to those affected, while urgent steps are immediately being taken to ensure such tragedies are prevented in the future.

While we urge all residents to exercise utmost caution as the rainy season intensifies, we reassure of sustained efforts and our commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of all citizens.

May God grant repose to the souls of the departed and succour to their families.

His Excellency,

Godwin Obaseki

Governor, Edo State
