Fire Guts 18 Shops In Osun, Owners Cry Out
A fire outbreak has gutted at least 18 shops in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.
The incident occurred on Saturday evening after the owners had gone home.
Although the cause of the inferno is yet to be ascertained as at the time of filing this report, officials of the federal and state fire service were immediately deployed to prevent it from spreading further.
Shop and property owners who lost valuables worth millions of naira have now called on the government and well-meaning Nigerians to come to their aid.
Meanwhile the General Manager of the Oshogbo Post Office, Mrs Yemisi Ogunlana, who spoke to Channels Television, said contrary to reports that the post office was also gutted by the fire, it was not affected.
