According to him, the fire which started by 12 midnight on Friday from an unknown source.

He lamented that the Oyo State Fire Service was immediately called but unfortunately when they got there, the nuzzle of their truck was not functioning.

“So we have to resolve to self-help by putting out the fire ourselves, or else, the loss would have been more than this.”

According to him,  most of the owners of the shops affected by the fire just bought goods into their respective shops, adding that, that was what made the total value of the goods affected by the fire to be much.

“The shops that were affected include shop of a jewelry seller, shop of a food ingredient seller, shop of a provision seller, red oil seller and herbs seller, among others, five million, six hundred thousand was the worth of jewelries that got burnt, and most of the goods affected in the shops of the herbs seller cannot be replaced because they were ancient goods that can not be seen on market again.”

He, however, appealed to the Oyo State Government to come to their aide because the loss was too much for the victims to bear.
