After coming under fire for using jerrycans of fuel as souvenirs to her guests at her event last week at Havillah Event Centre Oniru, Lagos, the Erelu Okin, Pearl Ogbulu, has been remorseful over the incident, claiming she only gave people the fuel outside, before some overenthusiastic guests took the fuel into the hall in excitement.
Since the video of the event went viral, giving room for public outrage, the Lagos State Government had reprimanded her by shutting the Havillah Event Centre, where the event was held.
To show how remorseful, she was and take responsibility for the whole event; she has, today, Tuesday, reported to the office of the Lagos Commissioner of Police for proper investigation.
Making this known via her verified Instagram handle, she posted that: “I have come again on bended knees to say I am sorry about the petrol souvenir. I have ‘reported’ myself to the police this afternoon to help with their investigation.
“My intent is to help on their investigation to the unfortunate incident. I am thankful that my error in judgment has not caused damage and I plead with you all not to throw the baby away with the dirty water.
“I am sorry and my intent was never to cause harm to anyone or abuse your sensibilities. Do not destroy me because of my unintentional error. I have come to regret my error. I intend to focus on safety and security and will put my energy into ensuring that my community works to include safety and security.
“I want to use this opportunity to thank all my loved ones for their support. Your kind words have helped my mental health. I will remain focused and put effort into the community.”
