Property worth millions of naira have been destroyed as a result of a fire incident that occurred at Bodija plank market in Ibadan.
DAILY POST gathered that the fire incident occurred Monday night.
Our correspondent reports that Bodija plank market, which is also known as Iso Pako, is one of the popular markets in Ibadan.
The Chief Fire Officer in Oyo State, Mr Moshood Adewuyi when contacted, confirmed the incident to DAILY POST on Tuesday.
Adewuyi told the newspapper that a wing in the plank market was affected.
He, however, said that he cannot quantify the worth of the property destroyed now.
“Yes. There was a fire incident at plank market in Bodija on Monday.
“I cannot quantify the worth now. I can’t say that this is the total number of shops affected. But, it is a wing in the market that was affected.
“Our men did not allow the whole wing to be destroyed before they quenched the fire. They did not allow it to spread,” he said.
DAILY POST recalls that the fire incident at Bodija plank market is coming less than two weeks after property worth millions of naira were destroyed when fire razed auto spare parts market at Agodi-Gate in Ibadan.
