Goods and properties worth millions of naira have been destroyed in a fire incident that gutted about 68 shops at the Kure ultra- modern market in Minna.
The fire, which started on Friday, was said to have begun by 6am.
Many traders had to rush down from their houses to the market to rescue their shops and goods from the inferno.
Stations in Minna were also busy trying to put off the fire.
The inferno was said to have started from the line where palm oil was sold and gradually moved towards the clothing line.
Traders were seen grabbing their goods and crying with sympathisers consoling them.
Efforts are on to put off the inferno.
