“Yes. There was a fire incident at plank market in Bodija on Monday.

“I cannot quantify the worth now. I can’t say that this is the total number of shops affected. But, it is a wing in the market that was affected.

“Our men did not allow the whole wing to be destroyed before they quenched the fire. They did not allow it to spread,” he said.

Franktalknow recalls that the fire incident at Bodija plank market is coming less than two weeks after property worth millions of naira were destroyed when fire razed auto spare parts market at Agodi-Gate in Ibadan.
