Millions Lost As Fire Razes Ibadan Auto Spare Parts Market

Goods worth hundreds of millions of naira were, on Friday night, gutted by a fire incident, which razed down dozens of shops at the Araromi Auto Spare Parts Market, at Agodi-Gate, Ibadan, Oyo State.

Eyewitnesses revealed that the inferno started at about midnight. It was still on at noon on Saturday when The Guardian visited the scene.

Even though distress calls were made to the Oyo State Fire Service, the timely response of the firefighters could not stop the inferno, as access roads to the fire scene were blocked by spare parts cleared from some shops.

Consequently, the two teams of firefighters had to set up and operate from afar. Their efforts yielded little dividends as the water hoses could not get to the scene.
