.…destroys Property Worth Millions
By Richard Thomas, Ibadan
Another fire incident occurred in Ibadan destroying properties worth millions of naira in early Sunday morning.
According to sources, the fire disaster occurred at one of the biggest indigenous furniture company located along Iyaganku/ J.Allen road in Ibadan.
Heavy-duty equipment and display furniture were completely razed while three other shops across the road were also affected by the fire outbreak.
According to eyewitnesses, the fire started around 3:00 a.m.
Some of the shop owners affected ran to the scene after getting distress calls in the early hours of the day.
It took the combined efforts of fire-fighters belonging to the private companies around the area to stop further escalation of the fire.
This follows a tragic fire accident that occurred last week Friday in Eyin Grammer area of Molete in Ibadan where three siblings were killed.
It will be recalled that another fire disaster occurred in Akesan market in Oyo town, destroying property worth millions of naira.
