Fire outbreak is becoming rampant markets in Oyo state.
Exactly a month ago, as the Oyo State Government is working towards completing Akesan Market in Oyo Town that got burnt a year ago, fire also razed the famous Sabo market.
The fire, which started around 10:00 p.m., spread to most parts of the market. The Chief Fire Officer in Oyo State, Moshood Adewuyi, who confirmed the incident, said eight shops were affected by the inferno.
He said the fire emanated from a nearby dumpsite close to the market. The dumpsite was set ablaze and was not monitored.
