Fire consumes Iseri/Olofin Hausa settlement

By AKEEB ALARAPE

It was Armageddon yesterday night at the Hausa settlement, Iseri Olofin area of the long bridge linking Lagos and Ogun states, as a raging inferno consumed no fewer than 50 shanties, belonging to Hausa traders. The inferno, which eyewitnesses said started at about 8:00p.m, was said to have been caused by an exploded cooking stove.

In a bid to avoid an outbreak of fire, the owner of the stove was said to have flung the burning stove outside the shanty, which unfortunately fell on a generating set and caused explosion. The impact was said to be serious as the lines of shanties went up in flame simultaneously and lasted over two hours. The incident caused some traffic build-up on the six lanes expressway.

An eyewitness, Mrs. Adebusola Adekoya, who lives around the area said she saw the billowing smoke and ‘big fire’ from Berger Bus-Stop on her way from the church. “It was a serious incident. I had to call the emergency line, but I was told that they already knew about the incident and were on their way to the scene,” Adekoya said. It was not certain, as at the time of filing this report, whether any life was lost during the inferno.

  1. OKEY NOT BAD AT ALL,,,,BUT THEM SHOULD FEEL SOME PAIN….BECOUSE WHEN BOKO HARAM ATTACKS IGBO TRADERS MOST OF THEM ARE ALL WAYS HAPPY…EVEN NOTHING SERIOUS WILL BE FIND THEIR BECOUSE MANY OF THEM ARE SHOE SHINING AND SUGER CAN SALERS …I CAN ONLY SAY SORRY TO THEM..IF THEY ARE SURE IS STOVE THAT COST THE FIRE….IS NOT SOME DEVICES THAT COST THAT

  2. Yesterday I posted a comment on the Kaduna killing article but that article was taken off. Mmmmhhhhhh !!!! what goes around comes around. The blood of the innocent men, women and children killed in May, 1967 polgrom is still crying to God for vengence. ” Vengance is mine says the Lord”. So how does it feel to know that your loved ones were hacked down in a cold blood just because of the section of the country they come from? Now they want to bring their shamless and barberic act to Lagos but God sees all things and raises standard against evil machination against His children even when no human eyes could see any evil plan. I believe that the explosion of this magnitude should be from explosive devices. If it is from natural course i express my condolences.

    Boko haram actors should stay away from entire Yoruba land because Yoruba Deities will deal with them before they strike any where in our land.
    Light and darkness can not stay together, so boko haram is an agent of darkness that must stay away from Yoruba land.

    CPC and ANPP terrorists were all welcome to ACN States with political thugery, bombing, killing, shooting and violence. This is a trade mark of CPC Boko Buhari and ANPP of we make the govt ungovernable. Those Core-Northern almajiris, CPC/ANPP party agents, youths, thugs and trouble maker will think that merging with Yoruba ACN mean bringing power arm-seeking equipment and ammunitions to Yoruba land. That’s what they believe in, politically, religiously and traditionally.
    We the SE and SS cannot allow the political merger mistake to pose a security threat to our peace in the entire southern Nigeria, including in Lagos State. We cannot look away for smooth and peaceful economic and residential interest.
    Whatever happened to Lagos/Ibadan SW is likely to happen to Benin/Asaba SS and is already in Onitsha SE. These areas must be guided jealously.
    What an ordinally Far-Northern see and fail to report to security agent, all the Southernern need not to see it b4 reporting it. A common southerner (even Muslims of southern origin) cannot shy away from protecting south. We know that Yorubas can change at any time, but not when it involve Yoruba land. They can support Far-Core North against SE and SS and that’s why we should not allow them to secure our lives even in their land.
    Security alert coming from SW is not encouraging.

  5. All their investments in S.W was based on erecting make shifts or shanties that,s all, knowing fully well that they must abandon these rubbish at any given moment, still Yorubas finds it easy to dine and wined with those humans.
    How else should we record the damaged occasioned on this inferno, meaning that there is no tangible effects that was destroyed only cooking stove and tigger generating sets that is of no value.

    • IN REALITY, YOU HARDLY SEE A CORE NORTHERN BUILDING A SOLID STRUCTURE HERE IN THE SOUTH – ONLY WOODEN SHANTIES THE RICH ONE AMONG THEM WE ONLY HIRE FINE HOUSE. ALWAYS READY TO DISSAPEAR WHEN THE NEED ARISES UNLIKE SOUTHERNERS THAT SETLE DOWN WELL WHEREVER THEY FIND THEMSELVES.

    • NO ! AS FAR AS MANY COMMENTATORS ARE CONCERNED ALL MUSLIMS ARE EVIL. ALL MUSLIMS ARE TERRORISTS. I AWAIT THE DAY WE BEGIN TO DESSIST FROM BLANKET COMDEMNATION OF PEOPLE BASED ON ETHNICITY. CHANGE REMAINS FAR FETCHED IN THE LAND UNTIL WE CAN JOIN FORCES ACROSS CULTURES. THERE ARE MONSTERS EVERYWHERE. WHEN I READ ETHNIC COLOURED VENOM ON LINE I TREMBLE . THERE ARE BOKO ARAM PEOPLE EVERYWHERE. IF THEY HAVE THE OPPRTUNITY THEY WILL KILL AND MAIM. I
      ALSO BLAME THE ADMINISTRATORS OF SUN AND OTHER ONLINE PAPERS FOR NOT FILTERING THE POSTINGS

  6. This may be holy gust fire ooooooooooooo. If so I pray for more of it in Kano, Maiduguri, Yobe, Buhari house etc

  7. abdullahi mohammed ismail,it is not cannot feel sorrry for they are unrepentant human been that always like to kill non muslim,how can God encourage some body to kill other just because they are not in the same faith.

    however,hardly u see Hausa man built a good house in any where in d south but u see ibos developing every where they go because they believed in one nija but northern man found it difficult to built house becos they do not believe in one nija but they claim not from their heart.
