Balogun market in Lagos reportedly on fire

Emerging reports are claiming that popular Balogun market in Lagos state is on fire with a lot of properties being lost to flames.

Legit.ng reports that field officials of the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) and Lagos State Fire Service have been deployed to quench the flames.

However, at the time of writing this, Legit.ng could not establish what led to the inferno nor the extent of damage it has caused both in terms of lives and properties.

Moreover, the only official response of the police command in the state on the tragic development has been silence so far.

This is coming few weeks after the residents of Onitsha witnessed a fire accident which was caused by a tanker laden with petrol. The tanker was said to have rammed into buildings in an Onitsha market, spilled its contents in the neigborhood and sparked a fire that ravaged buildings, and destroyed goods worth millions of Naira.
