Toke Makinwa slams fire service for taking 20-hours to respond to her emergency call


Chatterbox media personality, Toke Makinwa has taken a major swipe at the Nigeria Fire Service for taking over twenty hours before responding to a fire incident in her house.

The radio personality who is known for hosting The Morning Drive on Rhythm 93.7 FM and for her YouTube vlog series Toke Moments called out the fire service department on social media after they failed to show up immediately after a fire incident at her residence.

In a series of tweets shared via her Twitter page on Tuesday, March 23, 2021, the media personality slammed the organisation for its delay in putting out the fire.

“Nigeria is jokes man, this is a fucking movie. There was a fire at my house last night, thank God it was curtailed, the emergency fire department was called. Guess what time they strolled into my house? 1pm today.

“This country is designed to frustrate you, you call on the fire department and they show up almost 20 hours later asking questions like “who put out the fire”? I am still shocked.

“5 firefighters in uniform walk up to me talking about can they inspect the location of the fire outbreak?? We needed you at 10pm last night, you didn’t show up, we fought to contain the situation and you want to inspect what exactly??? This country is a pure cruise.

“Then they ask to come back to teach the household how to use a fire extinguisher, between the shock I’m feeling, the anger and tiredness, I’m not sure how to feel about my country Nigeria,” she concluded.
