Horror! Midnight Fire Destroys Multi-Million Naira Electronic Shop In Kogi (Video)
The shop on fire
According to Daily Post, the very sad incident is coming two days after no fewer than 23 persons were burnt to death in a tanker explosion along Felele/Lokoja/Abuja highway.
Eyewitness accounts told DAILY POST on Saturday morning that the electronic shop was gutted by fire at about 11:50PM Friday as many residents watched helplessly.
The electronic shop is located along Murtala Mohammed way, close to GT Bank Junction, Lokoja.
Owned by one business mogul, Peter Onujeme, the shop was burnt to ashes as there was no firefighter or fire truck to quench the fire.
DAILY POST further learnt that the office of the Federal Fire Service, is a few meters away from the scene of the incident.
“The whole building was burnt down and goods worth millions were destroyed. What a pity. Somebody’s hard earned investment was completely destroyed by fire and nobody or even the constituted authorities could come out to salvage the situation. Now the owner is left with nothing. What is the function of the State and Federal Fire Service in Kogi State?
“What is more worrisome is the absence of the fire services to help out anytime there is a fire occurrence. The recent episode is therefore one too many.
“Whenever their services are needed, it is either they come out with one flimsy excuse or the order. Can you imagine, look at the office of the Federal Fire Service, just a stone’s throw to this electronic shop and this shop still burnt down completely without any help from them.
“This situation is an ugly one because we can recall that two days back, a tanker exploded in the same Lokoja, Kogi State, claiming lots of lives and properties and now this one is happening again,” an eyewitness lamented.
