Popular Balogun Market Reportedly On Fire...

A massive fire has razed the popular Balogun Market on Lagos Island, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria, with eight buildings burnt and properties worth multi-million naira destroyed.

Thick smokes and balls of fire bellowed the atmosphere as fire fighters and emergency responders battle to salvage traders’ wares.

Already, eight buildings have been razed by the rampaging inferno, with traders watching akimbo as their wares go up in flames.

The fire started in a four-storey plaza at Martin Street, beside Great Nigeria Limited, Leventis Bus Stop, Lagos Island.

Dr. Femi Oke-Osanyintolu, spokesman, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency, LASEMA, said on arrival at the scene of the incident, it was discovered that a four-storey plaza had been gutted by fire.

He said the cause was as a result of improper storage of fuel.

  1. Sad news.
    Nigerians live in an oil producing economy but fuel is such a scarce commodity that people always have to store it in their houses and shops to get along?
    What a shame of a government we have.
    Dangote, please finish this your refinery and crash fuel price like you did cement and shamed the greedy importers. 😮😮😮😮

    1. He did not crash price of cement but connived with OBJ to kill Ibeto cement who was the market leader, so Dangote monopolized the cement industry. HE DICTATES THE PRICE. It was late President Yar'dua (may his soul RIP) that reinstated Ibeto's cement license to correct the injustice.

      So, don't think Dangote will crash the fuel price.

    2. 14:18 Are you serious?😦😱

    3. I'm not 14:18, but yep, that's what happened. Reason I always look at his Forbes ranking sideways. Healthy competition in business isn't evil, after all, the sky is big enough. Why monopolize the whole thing, and through such means?

  2. Kai ..... This is too much. They want people to die in poverty

  3. this just too much for us God .... my just paid her shop rent this January o . I have been begging mama to come home since I heard the news but she no gree she has been crying on the phone that she is trying to get the little she can from her goods

  4. Again,Igbos are being affected most. Chai

  5. may God help us in this country....pls,we need to be extra careful this harmattan period

  6. Oh Lord have mercy. Billions of naira gone? Not to four months that one got burnt oooo.

  7. Please Nigerians stop all these over sharp or too smart mentality ,we are always in a hurry to get to no where,
    This incident was caused by a too smart guy who insisted in pouring fuel into a running generator to beat a few minutes of switching it off and on.
    See the billions of naira lost and psychological trauma it's victims will go through in life.
