LAGOS STATE

Fire destroys goods, shops at Lagos
market.

Goods worth millions of naira and shops were razed by an early morning inferno at Ayoka Plaza in the popular Iyana-Iba market.

The cause of the fire that started at about 6:30 am was yet to be determined, as the incident happened when the shops were locked.

Traders whose shops were mostly affected by the inferno are wholesalers that stocked imported clothing, shoes, babies and household items.

When Vanguard visited the scene, yesterday, scavengers were seen picking up iron and burnt items from the rubbles, while some of the affected traders were busy removing debris of
burnt wares from their shops.

One of the affected traders, simply called Nne Ejima, who spoke to Vanguard, said: “My shop wasn’t directly affected by the fire as I was able to salvage my goods before the fire
got to it. Unfortunately, the people who helped me packed my goods stole them in the process.”

Recounting the incident, another trader, Amaka, who deals in baby items and shoes said: “I was getting ready for church when I received a call that the market was on fire. I immediately
boarded a bike. When I got here, the fire was raging, my goods were burning and I could do nothing to salvage any item.”

Attempts by Vanguard reporters and other interested parties to take pictures of the rubbles were rebuffed as the angry traders openly resisted by attacking them. They expressed fears
that the government may close the market if the disaster in the market was blown open.

Easter: Nigerian government declares
public holidays.

The federal government has declared Friday, April 15 and Monday, April 18, as public holidays to mark the 2022 Easter celebration, a statement by the interior ministry said.

The Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola, who made the declaration on behalf of the federal government, felicitated with Christians and Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora on
this year’s Easter celebration.

He advised Christians to emulate the attributes of sacrifice, togetherness, forgiveness, kindness, love, peace and patience, which were the attributes and practices of Jesus Christ,
as exemplified by His ministry on earth.

“Aregbesola, therefore, called on Christians and all Nigerians alike to use the occasion of this year’s Easter Celebration to pray for an end to all security challenges bedeviling
every part of the country,” the statement signed by the ministry’s permanent secretary, Shuaib Belgore, said.

He assured Nigerians that the federal government will leave no stone unturned to ensure that the recent attacks by undesirable elements on the highways, airport and the railway are
timely brought to an end.

“Security is everybody’s business. I, therefore, urge Nigerians and foreigners resident in our country to display a high sense of citizenship and public spiritedness at this critical
time in the history of our country, by supporting the efforts of all security agencies in bringing peace and security of lives and property of the citizenry,” he said.

He enjoined Nigerians to join hands with the
President
Muhammadu Buhari-led administration
in its determination to bring sustainable development and usher in prosperity for all.

“There will surely be light at the end of the tunnel,” he said.
