Former Vice President and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar has expressed sadness over the fire that engulfed the popular Yola Central Market, in Yola, Adamawa State.

Properties worth billions of naira were today razed by early morning inferno at the Yola market in the Adamawa state capital, said to be about 120 years old.

In a press statement released in Abuja through his media office, Atiku said the fire incident is one too many and calls on authorities in charge of public places like markets, schools and factories to be extra vigilant at this period of the year.

According to him, fire incidents during this period of harmattan can be quite devastating in their impact because of the prevalence of the dry trade wind blowing from the North east part of the country and which tends to lend a helping hand to otherwise containable fire outbreak to get out of hand.

A shop owner at the Yola market, Mallam Adamu told Thisday that “The fire started at about 3am and efforts made by early symphatizers to extinguish it were stopped by security operatives for the fear that they may loot goods inside the market.”
