An early morning fire has gutted the largest auto spare parts at the Araromi Market at Agodi Gate, in Ibadan, Oyo State capital, leaving several shops and property worth several millions of Naira destroyed.

Affected traders wailed as the fire which started in the early hours of Saturday, April 3, 2021, raged for several hours, reports Channels TV.

The distressed traders were said to have called the attention of the Oyo State Fire Service as others made frantic efforts to put out the intense fire.

Traders wailed as the fire raged on for many hours.

According to eyewitnesses, firemen on arrival at the market had difficulty in getting close to the spot of the fire as the pathway was blocked by shops.

The inflammable materials were also reported to have intensified the fire, as the tyre section of the market suffered the most devastation, according to report.

However, report indicates that no casualty was recorded, but traders said valuables including fairly used tyres and spare parts worth millions of Naira have been destroyed.
