Santana market in Benin gutted by fire

Santana market in Benin has gone up in flames. Property worth millions of naira were on Saturday night gutted by fire at the market located at Benin-Sapele road, Benin city.

Details of the cause of the fire incident are still sketchy. A witness however says the fire outbreak might not be unconnected to a power surge which resulted in an explosion in one of the stalls.

By Sunday morning,  traders and sympathisers had gathered around the market as many women were seen weeping uncontrollable.
