Traders at the popular Kugbo furniture and building materials market in the nation’s capital, Abuja are counting their losses after an early morning fire outbreak that destroyed their sources of livelihood on Sunday January, 10th 2021.

Reports say that no immediate cause has been given for the outbreak, but some witnesses suggested it may have been as a result of an electrical fault.

Some of the traders lamented that they had lost goods worth millions of naira to the inferno that took place in the market along Nyanya-Mararaba Expressway road in Abuja.

According to them, operatives of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) only arrived the scene about three hours after the fire had started.

The traders, therefore, called on the government to set up a fire service point in the market to forestall future outbreaks.

Meanwhile, the Minister of State, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Hajiya (Dr.) Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu in a visit to the scene of the incident has sympathized with the traders over the unfortunate incident.

The minister also pledged government’s support to help the traders in rebuilding the market.
