Nnewi, Jan. 23, 2020 (MOI) Religious leaders in Anambra have been tasked to be fire-conscious, so as to educate their congregations on dangers of indiscriminate bush fires.

Fires have been common occurrences these days and careless handling of inflammable materials has not helped matters.

Gov. Willie Obiano made the observation during a Holy Mass to mark St. Agnes and the 73rd birthday of the Catholic Bishop of Nnewi Diocese, Most Rev. Hillary Okeke at the Blessed Iwene Tansi Centre, Nnewi.

The governor urged them to procure necessary firefighting equipment that would be installed in various Church buildings.

He stressed that his administration was committed to supporting the State Fire Service Department in prompt response to fire incidents in the state. (MOI)
