Fire Outbreak In Ibadan Spare Parts Market Destroys Shops

At the Araromi Spare Parts Market, Agodi Gate, Ibadan, in the early hours of Saturday, a fire outbreak completely destroyed about 25 stores.

In a telephone conversation with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Ibadan, the General Manager of the Oyo State Fire Service, Rev. Canon Yemi Akinyinka, verified the occurrence.

Akinyinka claimed that the service received a call regarding the incident at around 2.30 a.m. through Mr. Soliu and sent people to the scene right away to put out the fire.

“The incident was caused by a careless burning of refuse, they refuse to put off the burning refuse before leaving the shop and it escalated.

“The impression they gave us initially was that around 45 shops were affected but when we got there we discovered that 25 shops were affected by the fire incident,” Akinyinka said.

He further said that his men were able to extinguish the fire around 5.00 a.m. on Saturday and no life was lost in the incident.
