While emergency workers are in the area, the cause of the fire, which is feared to have destroyed goods worth millions, is yet to be disclosed as of the time of this report.

Minutes after the inferno, some traders stormed the place and were captured trying to salvage some of their goods and other valuables.

Recall that fire incidents in markets are common in Nigeria, in November, an inferno affected the popular Ladipo Market in the country’s commercial capital.

Most of the incidents have been blamed on electrical surges and poor market structures which make it easy for the fire to spread.

Late response from emergency officials and lack of firefighting facilities have in the past hampered the fight against fires especially in public places.
