In what will come across as a really heartbreaking development, a fire outbreak has reportedly engulfed some parts of the popular Balogun Market in Lagos Island destroying valuables worth millions of naira.

Some of the traders who arrived at their shops on Thursday morning with the hope of a promising day in anticipation of the festive season sales were heartbroken seeing their shops burnt, Vanguard reports.
