Traders Lament As Fire Destroys Shops In Ojodu Market
Traders at a market in Kosoko street, Ojodu area of Berger, Lagos State, on Tuesday morning woke up to the sad news of a fire outbreak which destroyed many of their shops.
According to the traders, the fire started from a power surge at about 10.30 pm on Monday, destroying many stalls and goods.
They also lamented that despite the response from fire rescues operators, the lack of access road to the market delayed the rescue operation.
An eyewitness, Ishola Olodele said, “immediately the fire started, we had to engage boys to use the fire extinguisher.
“When we saw that it was getting out of hand, we had to make a call to Lagos State fire service.”
Although no life was lost in the inferno, valuables which are yet to be quantified were lost in the fire.
