Fire Destroys No Fewer Than 13 Shops At Agbara Market This Morning
The fire which started at about 4.35 a.m. developed from one of the container shops opposite the expressway, but its cause has yet to be ascertained.
The 13 shops are all situated in a single line directly opposite the expressway.
A shop owner, Mrs Funmi Olabode, said she was contacted on phone by a neighbour who informed her of the incidence.
She said that she evacuated all her wares before the fire razed her shop, but expressed regrets that she could not rescue the goods of some of her neighbours.
