The state Commissioner of Police, Adie Undie, said the fire started around 1:30am and that the cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained.
“This incident happened around 1:30.a.m and our men and that of the Department of Fire Service responded promptly. The nature of the market really hindered the men of the fire service from accessing it with ease, but they did their best. My officers were able to cordon the arena and ensure hoodlums didn’t take undue advantage of the situation to loot.” he said
