Goods worth millions and properties were destroyed in the inferno as reported by PUNCH Metro, although the source of the fire outbreak is yet to be identified at the time of filing this report.

However, residents and shop owners were seen running helter skelter in their bid to salvage what they could lay their hands upon.

Fire fighters from the Delta State Fire Service later came in to put off the raging fire before it could escalate to other sections of the market.
