The impacted stores were in the well-known Afor Awkunanaw Market, also known as Garriki Market.

According to eyewitnesses, a commercial mall with electrical shops, hair salons, phone accessories, a café, and motor/motorcycle components caught fire at 11 p.m. on Monday night.

According to one of the witnesses, Onyebuchi Omerie, the entire building would have been entirely destroyed if it hadn’t been for the intervention of residents who ran to the area in time to help put out the raging inferno.NYSC portal

Omerie stated that, while no one could say for certain how the fire originated, numerous stories claimed that the inferno that burned the retail center began with waste in the gutter that was set fire to, but it spread and attacked the building.

“I don’t know actually what caused the fire incident. I heard that someone set fire to a refuse in the gutter when they closed for business yesterday and the fire spread and caught the building that housed the shops. It was also said that the fire was caused by a Suya seller who probably did not put out the fire from his oven well,” a resident told our correspondent.JAMB portal

He claimed that he lived nearby and that when he smelled smoke coming from the stalls, he assumed it was his generator, only to learn that it was the stores that had caught fire.

“I live nearby. When I perceived the smell in the night around ten or eleven in the night, I thought it was my generator but when I came out to find out, I saw the shops in flame,” the resident said.

He also said that when the Fire Service personnel came, they could not put out the fire because they lacked enough water.

“It was people that started bringing water from everywhere that were able to contain the fire from consuming the entire building,” he also said.

When our correspondent arrived at the scene of the incident, which was directly opposite Akwuke Junction, Agbani Road, sympathisers were busy trying to recover some goods from the wreckage while some others looked on aghast at the gory incident.

“What a tragedy that people should lose their source of livelihood this January and in this economic hardship,” a female sympathiser lamented.JAMB Result
