Ibadan Christmas Fire: We Lost N1bn, Not N250m- Union

Mr Gbenga Fasoro, the Secretary of the traders’ union in the
popular Ibadan plank market, Alaro, in Sango, where the December 25 fire
incident occurred said traders didn’t lose N250m to the fire incident, but lost
times four of with which has been approximated to N1bn.
Gbenga said the fire didn’t occur at the plank market but a nearby
house but someone made it spread to the market when he threw a cooking gas
cylinder into the plank market. Gbenga said he had come to visit the market for
inspection when he heard a loud explosion and quickly went to his car to pick
his fire extinguisher, but sadly the fire had gone beyond what that could
250 shops, generators, equipment and goods were all destroyed
in the inferno.
