In a news conference, John Nnemeka, a representative of the federal fire service, revealed that the buildings’ design made it challenging for his men to get to the scene, which accelerated the spread of the fire.
He said, “We could not access the fire quickly because of the road network. We had to be careful driving in so that we don’t destroy electric cables and high-tension lines otherwise we would have arrived early but the road was too small. But in the end, a resident helped to break through his fence and passed our hoses and we started fighting the fire and we put out the fire.”
Recall that there was also a bomb explosion that happened in rivers around may 2021. A locally fabricated dynamite exploded when one Mrs Ifemia Aloke, popularly known as ‘mama Joy’ opened her fish shop, inflicting injuries on her son and one other young lady who are currently receiving medical attention.
