Popular Makurdi Market, Modern Market burns down (photos)

The market was built by first civilian governor of the state, late Aper Aku.

In 2003, the market suffered two major fire outbreaks that resulted in the loss of property worth millions of naira. The unfortunate development rendered jobless many who had built a living around the thriving market. Again, in 2004, another blaze razed the market, forcing relocation by traders who had become wary of the recurring inferno. Four years ago, another conflagration tore through the market, licking in its fury valuable goods and property.

 

This is the fifth time the market is razed by fire.

At the time of this report, Lasgidi Online could not confirm the cause of the fire.
