Angry mob sets fire station ablaze after fire guts popular Oyo market

An angry mob have set a fire station ablaze after fire gutted the popular Akesan market in Oyo State early hours of this morning.

Wares worth several millions of naira were said to have been destroyed in the fire.

Akesan market is famous for sale of wide range of food items, local artifacts, clothing materials, household utensils and more.

Although the immediate cause of the fire had yet to be confirmed, some people, however, attributed the incident to electric spark.

The people of the town reportedly went wild with rage when the official on duty told them that they could not do anything to quell the fire because there was no water in their fire truck.

The enraged mob reportedly set up the truck and other property at the Fire station on fire in protest.

Eyewitness said the inferno started around 12:30am.
