This is as fire destroyed properties worth millions of naira in the infernor at the shopping complex which was learnt was due to a blast from one of the shop.

A late evening fire incident on had razed about ten shops located within the shopping complex around 6pm but was prevented from spreading to the NIPOST office by fire fighters.

Speaking with journalists at the scene of the incident on Sunday, the Iyaloja of the state, Chief Awawu Asindemade said the unfortunate incident would unleash difficulty on shop owners except the state government intervenes to cushion the effect of the loss on their businesses.

“The extent of the fire had shown that goods worth millions of naira had been razed by the infernor, a loss which is likely to ruin the life of victims, except the state government comes to their rescue”, she said.

One of the victims, Olojo Titi, who sells clothes said she was on her way to Ilesa when she was called that the complex was on fire, saying unfortunately, she just stocked new goods recently and was yet to make any sale before the incident.

The goods in my shop is worth N980,000 and all of it perish in the fire outbreak. My neighbour shop, called Mama Malik, her shop is worth over N20million and as you can see, there is nothing that can be salvaged in the complex.
