Fire Razes Auto Spare Parts Market In Ibadan (Photos, Video) by HonNL: 9:05am
… Multimillion goods burnt

Hundreds of shops at the popular Araromi Auto Spare Parts Market at Agodi-Gate, Ibadan, the Oyo State capital have been razed by fire that started in the market at in the early hours of Saturday April 3, 2021.

Eyewitnesses account revealed that the inferno started at midnight and the fire was still raging with fury as at 8:30am when this reporter got to the scene.

Though distress calls were made to the Oyo State Fire Service, the timely response of the fire fighters, however, could not stop the inferno as the road to access the scene have been blocked by auto spare parts that were dumped on the road.

The two teams of fire fire fighters that came to the market parked their trucks at nearest place to the scene and they dragged their water hoses to battle the inferno. But could not really do anything tangible to stop the fire based on lack of access and their water hoses could not get to the scene.

The traders that came to the market were seen packing off the spare parts on the road as at 8:15a.m in order to clear the way for the fire fighters to get to the scene and quench the inferno.

As at the time the first fire truck accessed the scene, the fire had destroyed shops and goods in them for eight and half hours.

According to some traders, the fire was caused by a power surge in one of the shops in the market, adding that the market just had electricity supply restored recently after years of being without light.

A trader, who simply identified himself as Samson and deals in Toyota spare parts in the market, said the last time a similar inferno occurred in the auto spare market was 38 years ago.

A resident of Agodi-Gate, Pelumi Abdullahi, said: “As I gathered, the fire started around 12 midnight and still burning as at 8:30am today. My Uncle’s shop is among the burnt ones. Everything he has in the shop has been burnt. He is betraying emotions now. He does not know where to start again,”

Some other traders have also gathered in the market, watching helplessly as the fire burnt the shops. They cried, wailed and prayed for assistance from the the government.

As at the time of filing this report, fire fighters are still battling to put out the inferno.

We all know the owners are Igbos. Have you ever seen a Yorubaa spare parts dealer in your life? Do they even know the way or what it takes to import these parts from Japan and Korea? Keep burning Igbos shops and think that will slow Igbos down? Only God can slow Igbos down on this earth!

The government already gave them quit notice recently because that area is too jam-packed and like oshodi of old. All to safeguard against issues of fire and the likes.

The access road to the market is more or less not existent that was why fire fighters found it difficult to access the area to quench the fire.

My condolences to the people who lost goods.I hope they get back on their feet back real soon.. I hope so

Too bad!

Bros, for once leave Tinubu alone and face your peculiar challenges, because you’ll never win any laurel by this intervention. In contemporary Nigeria, the wise prays to succeed and gain renown, leaving the politicians to do to Nigeria as they wish.

Victim mentality is why Igboland remains the latrine it is. Instead of the of considering proper planning, HSE, Insurance and improve safety, you are parading persecution complex. If you continue like this, you won’t go far in life.
