According to him, "this is very unfortunate and not only heartbreaking, but  quite regrettable as well and I wish to call on all agencies of government involved in disasters management in not only Abia State, but in Nigeria to speed up their responses and ensure that survivors of this incident are given adequate attention with relief materials provided to their care givers and other families who have been affected’’.
