Breaking! Photos: Fire guts Katangowa Market in Lagos

Properties worth miliions of naira have been destroyed in an early morning inferno, Monday, August 19, when raging fire gutted part of Katangowa Market, Super bus stop in Agbado-Okeodo, along Lagos Abeokuta Expressway, Lagos.

This is coming barely 24 hours after a free-for-all broke out between some Hausa and Yoruba traders over a minor misunderstanding in the same area yesterday.

The fire is said to have started at around 3.15am, and destroyed the entire stretch of shops where fairly used clothes are being sold located opposite the Central Mosque in the market.

Though no life has been reported lost, the immediate or remote cause of the fire outbreak is yet to be known.


  1. I am sure these hausas are behind this

  2. Its those abokis that caused it. Let d police investigate well. Its their revenge against d Yoruba's and ugbos doing business there. Shikena
