Again, Fire Guts Ladipo Market


An inferno has yet again razed the famous Ladipo Market in Mushin, Lagos State.

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) briefing newsmen on the incident on Wednesday said that shops containing car accessories worth millions of naira have been gutted by fire.

Mr Ibrahim Farinloye, NEMA Acting Zonal Coordinator, South-West Zonal Office, said the fire started about 4 a.m. on Wednesday.

According to him, the shops affected contained vehicle air conditioners, engine oil, paints and other car accessories.

He told NAN that because most of the accessories were inflammable, firefighters had a hectic time putting out the fire.

He added that thankfully, no one was trapped or died in the incident.

The market had just recovered from another fire incident which had happened on Sunday, May 30th, 2021.
