Another Fire Guts Onitsha Market

Another Fire Guts Onitsha Market

Fire outbreak has occurred at the Ogbo-Osisi Plank Section of the Bridge Head Market in the commercial city of Onitsha, Anambra State.

The cause of the fire could not immediately be ascertained, but it was gathered that it emanated from the Port Harcourt Road section of the plank market opposite Zenith Bank on Thursday night.

This is just as traders and other residents around the market were seen crying for urgent intervention from the men of the state fire service.

It was corroborated by information currently circulating, which also showed the fire as it raged, while residents and traders watched helplessly.

A male voice in the video who explained how the fire started, also called the attention and presence of other shop owners in the market who had gone home.

Efforts to reach the Anambra State Fire Chief, Martin Agbili, proved abortive, as calls and messages to his telephone line were not responded to as of the time of filing this report.

Agbili was among the individuals recently appointed as permanent secretaries by the state governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo.
