Property and goods worth hundreds of millions of naira were gutted by fire at the popular Kara market in the Sokoto metropolis on Tuesday.
“There was no light at the market since 6pm on Tuesday. It was restored at about midnight.
“That was believed to be the genesis of the unfortunate fire incident,” Alhaji Musa Danhajiya, a victim, told NAN.
No loss of life was however lost in the inferno.
