Igwe, who said he could not quantify the number of goods he lost to the fire, appealed for assistance from Nigerians.

Earlier in the month, hundreds of shanties, shops and makeshift buildings at a sawmill in the Oko-Oba area of Lagos state were destroyed in an inferno.

Three days later, 300 shops were destroyed in another fire outbreak at Nguru market in Yobe state.

The fire, which started in the morning, was reportedly triggered by high electric voltage.
