Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Frodd has visited the deplorable scene of Wednesday’s fire disaster in Onitsha, Anambra state.
Frodd who hails from Anambra state noted that it breaks his heart after seeing the state of things at Ochanja market.
Frodd who was sober said;
“Charity begins at home. Indeed it’s a sad period for my people but I indulge you to be strong in these times.
“God Almighty will see us through this period. I indulge Nigerians to reach out to families and friends who were affected. I will be also partnering with foundations to see how we can help our brothers and sisters.”
This is coming after Governor Willie Obiano visited the scene on Thursday morning, promising to compensate the victims before Christmas.
The governor who was at the scene with members of his executive expressed sadness over the incident. Further, he assured that government would not leave them alone in this moment of grief.

Meanwhile, the Anambra state government had come under some heavy criticisms over its handling of the Onitsha fire incident.
A number of Nigerians had taken the government to task after one of the governor’s aides described the inferno as a natural disaster. However, the comments did not go down well with Nigerians who lampooned the government for the poor response of emergency services to the destructive fire.
