Properties worth millions of Naira have been destroyed in a fire incident that occurred at the Otukpo Local Government Main Market in Benue State.

Punch reports that the fire, which started about 6.30pm on Thursday, April  16, at the cosmetics and fish section of the market, lasted for over four hours.

Shop owners reportedly scampered for safety of their wares as the fire wreaked havoc in the market, leaving over 120 shops burnt.

According to the Market Master, Chief Obogo Alapa, coal pot stove and fuel containers might have caused the inferno.

The incident makes it the fifth time the market will be gutted by fire.
