The Caretaker, Mr. Mbo Bassey.

Although our reporter could not gather the cause of the outbreak, however, as speculated by Mr. Mbo he said “although there was no light yesterday night when the shops were closing, but I want to strongly believe that one of the tailoring shops or the barbing saloon had left an electrical appliance on and went home, which ignited the fire when the light was later restored early hours of this morning.”

One of the victims from the incidence, Mr. Enobong Moses, however, commended the prompt response from the State Fire Service, although he noted that “nothing much was done due to epileptic equipment they were using,” while calling on Government to equip the agency with functional fire-fighting tools that will aid in delivering better services to the citizenry in future events.
