The fire outbreak which is currently wrecking havoc at the market has thrown the traders and customers into a kerfuffle, as everybody is seen running helter skelter, with the aim of saving few more things.
Report said that the fire which started from Upper Iweka down to Amobi Market has swiftly melted down to Ogbo Akwukwo.
As at the time of filing this report, it is gathered that no fire service officer has been seen anywhere around the scene of the fire incident. A woman and her child have lost their lives to the cantankerous fire, among many other material losses.
Areas affected by the inferno include: Ochanja major Market, some part of electronic shops at Ochanja roundabou, Menax Junction, some parts of Iweka Road, all in Onitsha South Local Government.
commiserating with the Fire Victims former PDP governorship candidate, Oseloka H. Obaze, said “today’s inferno at Upper Iweka that affected Ochanja Market is most regrettable. My heart goes out to those directly and indirectly affected, especially those who lost loved ones. Precious lives and properties worth millions of Naira have been lost, and perhaps needlessly so. Those affected remain in our prayers”
