Victims lament as fire razes over 100 shops in Abuja furniture market


No fewer than 100 shops were razed in a fire incident at one of Abuja’s largest furniture markets situated in Kugbo.

Although no life was lost, the fire incident, which victims confirmed to this reporter as the fourth in 11 years, started early Sunday morning. It destroyed furniture items, materials and machines estimated at millions of naira.


Like other affected traders, Jude Okeke, was combing through the carcass of his shop when PREMIUM TIMES approached him on Monday noon.

Mr Williams reluctantly admitted to the congested condition of the furniture makers wing but dismissed it as the possible cause of the fire outbreak.
