Fire in the wee hours of Tuesday gutted several shops at Owode Market in Offa, Kwara State.

In a viral video sighted by this medium, some of the shop owners were seen screaming as they watched their goods destroyed by the inferno.

“This fire is too much. This is not caused by electricity. Maybe some people were cooking and the fire started from there because this fire is much,” one of the traders said in the video.

A source from the town on Tuesday morning said the fire was eventually put out by operatives of the Federal Fire Service and Kwara State Fire Service.

“The authorities are still assessing the situation, but personally, I know at least five shops were affected. The worth of goods and property destroyed can’t be said now until the assessment ends.

“There are also several claims as to the cause of the fire until we wait for the fire service to release their statement on it,” the source said.
