The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, disclosed this in a statement titled, ’Demands by Niger Delta Avengers: President Buhari’s response.’

The Niger Delta group had threatened to embark on economic sabotage unless certain demands, including the development of the Niger Delta and restructuring, are met.

But Adesina said the text of Buhari’s speech at the meeting with the Niger Delta leaders on Friday, which he reproduced in his press statement, rendered the threats by the group unnecessary.

The cause of the fire outbreak was still unknown at the time of filing this report.

Typical of the hospital, no official would speak on the incident.
