Fire destroys 4 houses in Port Harcourt


From TONY JOHN, Port Harcourt

Four buildings were gutted by fire in Port Harcourt yesterday, few days after a similar incident on the outskirts of the city in which no fewer than 10 houses were razed down. The fire incidents occurred on New Year’s Day in Rukpokwu, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area and Ikoku/Gambia Street, while others were on December 31, 2012, in Ogbunabali and Borikiri in Port Harcourt metropolis.

Daily Sun gathered that yesterday’s fire at Ikoku/Gambia area occurred at about 11am, and the cause of it unknown. Though no life was lost, it was gathered that four buildings were burnt while property worth millions of naira were destroyed. Spokesman of the joint union of Motor Parts Dealers, Technicians, Scrap Dealers and residents, Evang. Kingsley Obi (aka Westerhof), told Daily Sun that it was only Agip Oil Company that responded to distress call to put out the fire. Obi frowned at the negligence shown by the state government, appealing for quick intervention from relevant authorities. It also gathered that Agip fire service came back the second time at about 1:27 pm.

The leader of the team, Kingsley Opara, told journalists that they were alone at Ogbunabali and Rukpokwu to control the fire outbreaks. When the State Fire Service office was contacted on phone at about 1:20 pm, one Harry Davis told Daily Sun that they were unable to come because the office had ‘problems with their trucks’.

    The thing is that most government parastitus are not functioning and yet government absorb them, and that is why government of all levels can not pay their staffs. I suggest that any office that is not working should be closed down to avoid much spending.
