DAILY POST correspondent, who visited the scene, observed that baby wares, kitchen utensils, as well as some industrial tools amongst others were mostly affected. A victim, Mr. Friday Uzoma said that the fire was caused by high voltage which led to a power surge.

He said the inferno started at about 5:00 am on New Year day.

“I am not happy, because we made effort to call the fire service but they could not respond. They told us that they have no resources to put out the fire.

“We are starting from the scratch unless for those who sold out the stock before travelling and others who usually bring their goods from warehouses.

“A lot of the traders are even in the village for the New Year celebration but we have called and sent text messages to them about what has happened, as we speak many of them are on their way back to Calabar. We lost millions of Naira to this fire,” he said.

As of the time of this report, the police and other security agents were already on ground to safeguard goods as well as cordon off the area to stop hoodlums from taking advantage of the situation.
