15 shops razed as fire takes over Owode-Onirin market

A massive fire outbreak has razed 15 shops at Owode-Onirin Market, Lagos. Goods worth millions of naira were destroyed as traders are left to groan in pains and agony over the loss of their properties.

State’s emergency agency’s Director General, Dr. Femi Oke-Osanyintolu says on arrival at the incident scene, it was observed that the fire emanated from one of the several lines of shop within the market.

“The cause of the fire is unknown as there was no power supply within the market. No lives lost but valuables were destroyed,” he says.

He added that the fire razed 15 shops before it was put off.
