Member representing Aguata Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Mrs. Eucharia Azodo, has solicited the assistance of National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, and State Emergency Management Agency, SEMA, for victims of the midnight fire that gutted Ekwulobia Main Market in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, where property worth millions of naira was destroyed, to enable them start their businesses again.

About 100 traders were affected by the fire which completely destroyed the electronics section of the market and some nearby houses.

Addressing the victims at the burnt market, weekend, Azodo observed that the affected traders had lost all their life savings and, therefore, needed life-line to enable them continue their businesses.

Azodo also said she would sponsor a motion under matters of urgent public importance at the National Assembly for possible Federal Government assistance because of the level of destruction, and to ensure that NEMA intervened without unnecessary delay, in view of the hardship being faced by the victims.
